Infused Sweet Treats Co-Signed by Cannamoms

This month we teamed up with HiVi’s Higher Up community of mothers and asked them to find the best way to integrate the Ardent FX into their daily routines. Some mothers focused on skin and bodycare while others created sweet treats for discreet, accurate dosing.

If there’s one thing we can learn from our mothers, it’s that there’s always a solution to any obstacle. So whether you’re also a mompreneur yourself, or if you’re just looking for some infusion inspiration from wise women who juggle it all, check out these recipes!

Jules Engle

Cake Ingredients:

  • 1 cup olive oil, regular or infused
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 ¼ cup butter, unsalted or infused, at room temperature
  • 5 2/3 cups cake flour
  • 3 ½ cups granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup baking powder
  • 1 ½ tsp kosher salt
  • 3 cups whole milk
  • 7 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup Fruit Loops cereal, chopped

Cake Instructions:

  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F.  Grease three 8 inch round cake pans, then line the bottoms with parchment paper
  2. In a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine the olive oil, sour cream, and butter. Top with the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Mix on medium speed just until a crumbly consistency forms
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together the milk and eggs until blended. With the mixer on low speed, slowly add the milk-egg mixture in three equal additions, mixing until fully combined and scraping down the sides of the bowl after each addition. With the mixer still on low speed, add the cereal and mix just until combined.  Divide the batter evenly among the prepared cake pans
  4. Bake the cakes until a knife inserted into the center of one comes out clean, about 55 minutes. Transfer to wire racks and let cool for about 20 minutes
  5. Run a knife blade around the inside edge of a pan to loosen the cake sides, invert the cake onto a rack, lift off the pan, peel off the parchment, and turn the layer right-side up. Repeat with the remaining cakes and let cool completely.  The cakes can be well wrapped and stored at room temperature for up to 3 days or in the freezer for up to 1 month; thaw overnight in the refrigerator
Adult Celebration Cake

Buttercream Ingredients:

  • 3 ¼ cups granulated sugar
  • 14 egg whites
  • 4 cups unsalted butter, plus 6 tablespoons, unsalted and infused, at room temperature
  • 6 tablespoons hot water
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Grated zest of 1 lemon

Buttercream Instructions:

  1. Pour water to a depth of 1 inch in a 4 quart saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Put the sugar and egg whites in a large heatproof bowl and set the bowl over (not touching) the water in the saucepan. Heat, stirring, until the sugar has dissolved into the egg whites, about 10 minutes
  2. Transfer the egg white-sugar mixture to the stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment and whisk on medium-high speed until cool and thick
  3. Add the butter and continue to whisk until creamy and thick. Add the hot water, salt, and lemon zest and whisk until fully incorporated, about 3 minutes longer. Cover and refrigerate for up to 1 week

Whipped Cream Filling Ingredients:

  • 1 cup heavy cream, plus 1 cup, regular or infused
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • ¾ cup whipped honey, regular or infused
  • 1 pinch kosher salt

Whipped Cream Instructions:

  1. In the stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, combine the heavy cream, sour cream, honey, and salt and whisk on high speed until thick and fluffy, 5 to 8 minutes.  Cover and refrigerate for up to 3 days
  2. Using a long, serrated knife in a sawing motion, horizontally split each cake into three layers. To make it easier to cut, freeze the cakes for about 2 hours before cutting into thirds. You will have a total of nine layers
  3. Set a cake layer on a cake plate. Spoon about one-fourth of the buttercream into a piping bag fitted with a ½-inch plain tip and pipe a narrow wall around the edge of the layer (this is the “fence” to keep the cream filling in place). Fill the center with about ½ cup of the filling, spreading it in an even layer with an offset spatula.
  4. Top with a second cake layer and repeat the fence and filling. Continue in this way until you have stacked and filled eight layers. Top with the final cake layer and, using the offset spatula, spread a thin layer of buttercream over the top and sides of the cake to seal in any loose crumbs, creating a smooth surface. Refrigerate the cake for about 30 minutes to set the crumb coat 
  5. To finish, mound about one-third of the remaining buttercream on top of the cake and, using broad, smooth strokes, spread it evenly. Then, working in batches, apply the remaining buttercream to the sides of the cake in an even layer, returning to the top once again to smooth any rough edges. Sprinkle the top with Fruit Loops. The cake will keep, covered, in the refrigerator, for up to 5 days. Cut into even slices to serve
