My love for baking has definitely grown over the years.  I am still often reminded about the brownies that went terribly wrong in high school, but I’ve since managed to create a delectable Strawberry Mascarpone Cheesecake, a gorgeous Battenberg Cake with White Chocolate Ganache and an endless array of cupcakes.  With the holidays right around the corner I want to share with you my quick and easy Peppermint Mini Bundt Cakes that are made so much easier due to Pompeian Grapeseed Oil Spray.

Peppermint Mini Bundt Cakes

I definitely used to be the gal that prayed over the top of a cake before trying to get it out of the pan.  I was taught that you greased your pans the old fashioned way.  I can’t even count the number of cakes that I ended up having to piece back together with icing because part of it stuck to the pan.  Luckily, I’ve wised up a bit since then, but I was always a bit questionable about using a baking spray because it always had that smell of something artificial.   HOLD THE PRESSES! I finally found a product that I can wholeheartedly get behind.  Pompeian Grapeseed Oil Spray is all natural and made from 100% grapeseed oil imported from France.  The best part is that you can smell the difference.  There isn’t the smell of chemicals in the air after spraying your pans and I don’t feel like I need to put Avery in a different room when I spray my pans.

Peppermint Mini Bundt Cakes for Holidays

These Peppermint Mini Bundt Cakes are the perfect addition for any holiday party because they look like they took all day to make, but they’re honestly so easy.  My mini bundt pan is definitely one of my favorite purchases that I’ve made recently.  Not only does it have gorgeous detail, but you all know my love of individual portions.  Um, hello that would be why I have a separate tab just for cupcakes!  Plus, the peppermint icing is absolutely fabulous and perfect for the holiday season.

    Those look fabulous, Jenny. We`re going to the U.S. for American Thanksgiving and I`m thinking these would be perfect to bring along. Thanks for the inspiration!
