'Christmas Mistletoe Ring' Pandan Bundt Chiffon Cake

I had the inspiration to make a ‘Christmas mistletoe/holly ring’ (which adorn houses during Christmas to celebrate the birth of Christ) chiffon cake since 2 years back! Last year I finally made a Rainbow Mistletoe Ring Chiffon Cake! This year I thought of using the Bundt pan to get a prettier wreath shape! I tried baking chiffon cake in a Nordic bundt pan. However, the texture was slightly denser than normal fluffy chiffon cakes due to the non-stick surface. So I was really happy when a friend helped me get a silicone bundt pan from overseas! The silicone surface (and the tube support) allows chiffon cake to grip on so the chiffon cake is nice and fluffy, like the usual ones!

I decorated the chiffon cake with green chiffon cake ‘leaves’ of different colours, and red chiffon cake flowers, berries and bow. These were cut out from chiffon cake baked in layer trays.

The recipe with picture tutorial is now in 'Deco Chiffon Cakes' book.

Blessed Christmas to you and your family!

With lots of love,


  1. Hi Susanne,
    Your chiffon looks perfect for the coming festive celebration. Wishing you & your family a MERRY CHRISTMAS. May it be a blessed one.
    Best wishes, Kristy

    1. Thanks Kristy! So nice of you!! Blessed Christmas to you and family too!!

  2. Hi,

    May i ask how did you invert the silicone bundt cake pan after it is baked? Because it is rather soft unlike the aluminum pan?

    1. I place the wire rack (inverted) on the tube first, then inverted both together, pressed together. But I think you can don't invert too, since the grip on silicone is pretty good. Thanks
