The epic winter holiday cake. I used this recipe but with peppermint mocha brewed coffee. 4 layers, 2 fillings (dark chocolate ganache + mint cream), vanilla buttercream frosting & decorated with dark chocolate trees I drew on wax paper…all atop a peppermint tray. This took hours longer than I’ve ever spent on any other cake, but it was SO worth it. The wall art in the second photo (a favorite from Curly Girl Design) states that “it’s not what’s on the table that matters but what’s in the chairs” which I typically 100% agree with…except this cake took HOURS so in this particular case, I love the folks I shared this cake with on that table but this cake matters – at least a little bit.
