Is there such a thing as too many peppermint desserts this time of year? If you said yes, show yourself to the door. Peace out. For the rest of us, let’s get this red and white party started! Fresh on the heels of Monday’s Chocolate Truffle Peppermint Crunch Cookies, I bring you the reddest, whitest, stripiest, Christmassy-est cake I could make. Santa, eat your heart out.
This cheerful cake is made from deep, dark devil’s food cake and filled with peppermint candy cane frosting. Because I’m a super literal thinker, I had to decorate it with red fondant stripes like a giant candy cane. (I also like to judge books by their covers.) To top it all off, it’s finished with a big pile of crushed candy canes and these super cute candy cane lollipops from Hammond’s Candy. (I found mine at Target).
