This Chocolate Candy Cane Cake is a rich chocolate cake, filled with a minty candy cane frosting and covered with chocolate curls. It’s a fun and festive Christmas cake!
Note that candy canes do get sticky once exposed to air, so I recommend adding the decorative candy canes shortly before serving.
This recipe calls for pasteurized egg whites. It is safe to consume egg whites without cooking them, as long as you make sure that the whites you buy are pasteurized. To save time, I buy them in a carton--look for 100% egg whites, not liquid egg substitute. If you cannot find them in a carton, you can buy pasteurized eggs and separate them yourself. You’ll need about 5-6 large eggs to get the ¾ cup called for in the recipe.
