These caramel stuffed white chocolate cake truffles are the perfect gluten free party dessert (even if it’s a party of one). Ridiculously pretty, dangerously delicious and super easy to make, there’s nothing not to love about these cake truffles!

Caramel stuffed white chocolate cake truffles, decorated with gold star sprinkles, are arranged in an elegant long stemmed glass. One of the cake truffles has had a bite taken out of it, exposing the decadent caramel centre and the dense cake pop-like mixture surrounding it.

Cake truffles are my kryptonite. The dense, smooth texture, the blending together of the cake and the frosting into one glorious, slightly sticky but always dangerously delicious mess… Just thinking about them makes me all warm and fuzzy and hungry. Excuse me while I go gobble up about five of them.

Christmas is officially less than a fortnight away and, guys, I can’t wait.

You know what else can’t wait? The weather. Yesterday, we woke to a winter wonderland. Everything was covered in snow. There might have been squealing and bouncing… and more squealing. And then, there was a snowman. And a snow-Garfield, complete with a slightly bored look and coal-drawn stripes. I felt like I was 5 years old again and it couldn’t have been more perfect.

Fun, quirky and adorable, these gluten free Christmas pinwheel cookies are bound to become a holiday favourite. And what’s even better, these tasty (and ridiculously pretty) Christmas cookies are also super easy to make!

A bird's eye view of the gluten free red and green Christmas pinwheel cookies arranged on a decorative star-shaped plate, on a pale greyish blue background. White sprayed pinecones and small candy canes add to the Christmas atmosphere.
