Step 1: Preheat oven to 350*F.
Sift dry ingredients, set aside.
Step 2: Blend wet ingredients.
Gently mix dry ingredients into wet, until just incorporated.
Step 3: Pour batter into buttered mini bundt pan
bake @ 350*F for 1 hour.
Step 4: After about 1 hour, remove the cake from the oven.
If you can smell it, it is done!
Do a toothpick-test to be sure it’s baked well.
Allow it to rest in the bundt pan for about 10 minutes.
Then flip it over and place it onto a metal rack where it
will continue to cool.
Step 5: Icing #1: Chocolate Ganache:
Melt the chocolate chips gently over a water bath
or nuke them in a microwave.
Add the heavy cream and stir until nice & creamy.
Now is the right time to add the honey/corn syrup if
you want a shiny look.
Spoon ganache over half of the baby bundt and allow it
to drip over the sides.
Step 6: Icing #2: Lemon Glaze:
Zest the lemon, then juice it.
Stir into the powdered sugar until lumps disappear.
Spoon over cake and allow the glaze to flow down the sides.
Step 7: Don't be afraid to decorate with something festive. I set Papa Smurf onto my cake because he kinda looks like Santa.
Look through your kids' toys for something cute and unusual.
Voila! Now, you're a super-star!
