Snow Cakes were created by a home cook named Suzanne over at the Kmart Pie Maker Recipes, Tips and Ideas Australia Facebook group, and have quickly become the hottest new trend in town.
Using her $29 Kmart Pie Maker, Suzanne revealed how she whipped up the treats (pictured above) using a supermarket cake mix - and then finished them off with jam, cream and icing sugar.
She writes: "I call these snow cakes."
"It’s just a Greens Vanilla Cake Mix - so light and fluffy. Then cut off the top and spread a little jam followed by fresh cream, whipped with icing sugar and vanilla essence. They lasted all of 2 mins! Cooked them for 3-4 mins and checked with a skewer. I also used 1/4 cup of batter per cake."
The cakes were an instant hit on the Facebook page.
"Thanks so much to the lady that shared with us her snow cakes!" said Facebook user Bernadette.
"Oh my gosh did my shearers demolish these! They were just perfect for afternoon smoko in the shed this afternoon."
Since Suzanne first posted about the snow cakes, some of the Facebook group’s members started using a two ingredient method to whip up the cakes (cake mix and lemonade) - with amazing results.
Writes Kmart Pie Maker follower Rob: "Finally made the snow cakes.
"Used the Green’s vanilla cake mix ($2 in Coles currently) and 300ml lemonade.
"Cooked for around 6 minutes. Filled with whipped cream and home made strawberry jam.
"They are very light and delicious."
Added member Michelle: "Tried the lemonade method tonight. Used the Greens cake mixture and 300ml of lemonade, cooked for 6 minutes. Filled with jam and cream and dusted with icing sugar.
"Also made a variation - topped some with cream and added a mint slice biscuit. They were lovely and light and disappeared like a magic trick!"
