  1. Method for Cranberry Christmas Mini Cakes:
  2. Sieve all the flour and icing sugar together, then add the shortening. Mix well.
  3. Add in Cranberry Juice and mix well into a smooth dough. Let it rest for about 20 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, throw in sunflower seeds into white lotus paste and knead well. Make about 36 white lotus paste balls weighing 14g each. Set aside.
  5. Dust some flour on your hand or gloves to prevent dough from sticking. Divide the Cranberry dough into half, and roll into 2 long dough. Then make about 36 balls weighing about 10g each.
  6. Flatten the dough, and put a ball of white lotus paste filling in the middle and wrap around it. Dust more flour onto hand and roll the dough into a ball.
  7. Pour some Desiccated Coconut into a bowl. Drop the cranberry ball into the coconut to coat it. Shake off excess.
  8. Flatten the ball and place 1 Wafer Topping on each mini cake and decorate with Edible Silver Sugar Pearls.
  9. Refrigerate well and serve your Cranberry Christmas Mini Cakes chilled!
  10. Method for Pandan Christmas Mini Cakes:
  11. Rinse Pandan Leaves thoroughly and chop off the ends. Cut into strips and put into blender. Add water and sugar, and blend well. Use a strainer, then extract the pandan juice. Set aside.
  12. Follow 1st step in the above recipe, then add Pandan Juice instead and mix into a smooth dough. You can also add green colouring for a nicer colour ( optional ). Let it rest for about 20 minutes.
  13. Following the rest of the Cranberry recipe, except that you do not flatten the dough this time. Pour the colourful decorative toppings and chocolate gold flakes onto a plate. Roll the pandan balls to coat them. Shake off excess, then top each one with edible flowers and hearts.
  14. Refrigerate well and serve your Pandan Christmas Mini Cakes chilled!
  15. If you are giving them away as gifts, pack these Cute Christmas Mini Cakes into boxes and add those Christmas plastic cake toppers. Finally, seal them with a loving kiss and your friends will love you for these!
