Wrap up the festivities with the Sparkling Christmas Cake with Miele & Francesca Busso, bringing the perfect touch of magic to your season!

Ingredients for the Christmas Cake:

  • 250g flour
  • 250g granulated sugar
  • 250g cream
  • 3 eggs
  • 10g baking powder
  • Vanilla extract


  • Mascarpone Frosting
  • Super red gel food coloring
  • Silver confetti
  • Assorted candy canes, peppermint sticks, peppermint candy, and lollipops


  1. In a bowl, combine sugar, eggs, and vanilla extract. Using an electric whisk, whip the ingredients until you achieve a light and fluffy mixture.
  2. Add the sifted flour with baking powder, reducing the speed to a minimum.
  3. Whip the cream separately (ensure it is very cold from the fridge) and gradually add it to the batter. Add food coloring and mix gently.
  4. Pour the batter into a 22-centimeter diameter mold, previously buttered or lined with baking paper.
  5. Level the dough inside the mold and place it in a preheated oven at 180 degrees Celsius using conventional heat.
  6. Bake the cake for approximately 50 minutes. Check for doneness with a toothpick after 45 minutes.
  7. Once cooked, remove the cake from the oven and let it cool before decorating.

Mascarpone Frosting:

  • 250ml heavy cream (full fat and cold)
  • 125g Mascarpone cheese (cold)
  • 65g powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract or ½ vanilla pod
  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, combine heavy cream, cold mascarpone cheese, sifted confectioner’s sugar, and vanilla.
  2. Beat at high speed for about 5 minutes until you achieve a thick, firm cream.
  3. Be cautious not to overbeat the cream; if it becomes grainy, add very cold heavy cream in small amounts while letting the mixer run to smooth the frosting.
  4. Use the Mascarpone frosting immediately to decorate your Christmas cake.
