Cherry Cheesecake Tea Cakes

Teresa Ambra

Cherry Cheesecake Tea Cakes were one of our most loved goodies for our annual Christmas Baking Extravaganza this year. These lovely Tea Cakes include cream cheese and cheesecake pudding mix. They’re flavored with almond extract and use both red and green cherries. The icing includes both almond and cherry extracts for a bump in flavor that sets these Tea Cakes apart. Yes, they are absolutely wonderful.

I made over 15 kinds of Tea Cakes for holiday baking this year. I’ve loved each one–and so have our neighbors and church friends who received them. Included in the gift bags were Red Velvet, Pina Colada, Apricot, Gingerbread, Pumpkin Cranberry, Strawberry, Starbucks Copycat Lemon and so many more! Cherry Cheesecake were one of everyone’s favorites!

If you need a festive, beautiful and elegant dessert for holiday parties this year, Cherry Cheesecake Tea Cakes are perfect for you. Cherries and almond flavoring go so well together. These miniature Bundt cakes will become everyone’s favorite. You’ll love ’em.

    I wonder how you come up with so many beautiful cake ideas. I am also a baking lover but my ideas are always limited. This is also one of the reasons why I always admire those who can make cakes that are both delicious and beautiful.
