Miniature Gugl Wonderland

Winter decorations for your coffee table. Do you know Miniatur Wunderland in Hamburg? That insanely great modelling landscape with over 400,000 tiny little people, animals, trees, houses, lights and much more? You wander through the different worlds open-mouthed and can’t stop being amazed and impressed. Madness! Today, we have an idea for your own little miniature wonderland on a wintery coffee table: a miniature wonderland made of Gugl doughnut cakes. Your guests are guaranteed to be amazed. If you’re searching for the right coffee to match, we recommend having a look at Hensler, a coffee roaster from Wangen. They have a great Christmas coffee!

01
1. Bake mini "Gugelhupfe"
You don’t actually need much to prepare a heavenly, snowy Gugl cake landscape on your coffee table: some little homemade Gugelhupfe and some icing sugar, “Snowy Fir Trees”, “Christmas Market Stalls” and a few winter figures such as the “Skiers” or “Playing Children” for decoration. The little cakes are super quick and easy to bake. Here’s the recipe for 12 wintery mini apple and cinnamon Gugelhupfe: 

Ingredients: 
100 g flour 
1 egg 
50 g soft butter 
50 g icing sugar 
Some cinnamon 
50 ml milk 
1 small, grated apple 
Some grated lemon zest
 
Mix all the ingredients together and pour into a mini Gugelhupf mould. Small tip: pour the batter into a plastic bag and cut off the top. With this handmade piping bag, you can fill the little moulds with batter in no time. Put them in the oven at 220°C to bake for 13 minutes. Done!

3. Let it snow!
Und jetzt lassen Sie es noch einmal richtig von oben schneien: Entweder mit einem Sieb oder einer Mühle bringen Sie nun noch eine feine Schicht frisch gefallener Puderzuckerschnee auf. Ein bisschen Puderzucker bleibt so auf den Tannen, der Bude und den Gugls liegen. Abschließend können Sie Skiläufer, Glühweintrinker, Schlittenfahrer und Spaziergänger in die Landschaft stellen und fertig ist Ihr Miniatur-Gugl-Wunderland!

Your crafted results

Noch ein ganz wichtiger Hinweis: Sollten Kinder an Ihrem verschneiten Kaffeetisch sitzen, passen Sie bitte gut darauf auf, dass sie keine der Figuren, Tannen oder Modelle verschlucken. Es handelt sich bei den Produkten um Deko-Artikel, die nicht essbar und nicht für Kinder bestimmt sind.
Viel Spaß beim Staunen und Naschen!
Liebe Grüße,
Steffi & Moni
