Recipe's preparation

  1. Pre-heat oven to 160-180°C.

  2. Place pecans/almonds into TM bowl and mill for 10 seconds on speed 9.  Set aside.

  3. Place butter into TM bowl and melt for 2 mins at 60°C on speed 2.  Butter may not be completely melted which is fine.

  4. Place remaining ingredients, including the milled pecans/almonds, into TM bowl.

  5. Set dial to Closed lid and knead for 40 seconds on Dough mode to form a dough.

  6. With approximately a teaspoon of mixture, roll a ball and then shape like a small brick.

    Place on a lined baking tray and bake for 15-20 minutes or until lightly golden.

  7. Remove from oven and immediately roll in additional icing sugar.  Place on a cooling rack.

    Once cool, roll in icing sugar again.


Accessories you need



This recipe works best using Icing Mixture versus Pure Icing Sugar because the presence of tapioca or maize starch helps to stabilise the dough.  Also, Icing Mixture has a finer consistency and gives a better result when rolling the hot Mexican Wedding Cakes straight from the oven.  tmrc_emoticons.)

    These worked very well, even in my dodgy gas oven. Delicious little cakes.

  • There is no way I could roll

    There is no way I could roll these in the icing mixture when straight out of the oven, they just fell apart.  I let them cool on the tray and then moved them onto a serving platter and just sifted some icing suger over them and they were great.
