Tender red velvet cake layers have been smothered in a not-too-sweet peppermint white chocolate buttercream. Finish off this whimsical look with swirly frosting, piped details, and extra sprinkles!
I don’t have much to say about this cake, except that you should definitely make it ASAP! We are down to the final days before Christmas, and if you have yet to finalized your holiday menu, then I strongly encourage you to add this cutie to your list. Unapologetically whimsical, swirly, and pink, this cake is full of joy and Christmas magic! And if I can’t personally share a slice will you all, then please accept this virtual attempt to spread holiday cheer to all you cake lovers and dessert aficionados.
This week is usually spent baking cookies with my mom and wrapping last-minute gifts (side note- I LOVE wrapping presents), but things have definitely changed these past couple year. We won’t be flying out to California until the 24th, so this week leaves me with plenty of time to reflect and get homesick. I’ll try to focus on the former…. It’s just the little guy and me at home (with the hubs at work everyday). The weather is an absolute mess (yesterday’s gorgeous snow turned to slush) and all of Everett’s regular activities are on hold until after the New Year. In the meantime, we will try to fill our days with cookie-making, coloring, and lots of snuggles.
But back to this cake. I designed it with my little one in mind. Seeing Christmas through his innocent eyes this year has been pure magic. He still is a bit behind in the language department, but “Sansa” has become his new favorite thing to shout out (either he loves the idea of Santa or can’t wait until Game of Thrones returns, lol). So while you might find yourself trying to dig out from under a pile stress, chaos, wrapping paper, and sugar comas these next few days (me included), try to remember this is a season for love and ultimately FUN!
