We all enjoyed this cake. Unlike the photo, I didn't frost the entire cake. I used a decorative bundt pan and wanted the cake to show. So I drizzled the icing and used one crushed candy cane, which I sprinkled over top. It was very pretty and the cake was moist, so it didn't need the extra frosting. We took it to the in laws for dessert and wish that we would have brought some home. I will absolutely be making this one again!

I made this as the centerpiece of DH's goody tray for work, and it was a beautiful hit! The cake is very moist, the peppermint subtle, I only drizzled the icing on, colored it red and then green also! thank you for sharing!

I love this cake. I had found this recipe elsewhere, then lost it, and glad to find it here on Zaar! Goes great with peppermint ice cream too! It's super easy to make and always a hit during the holidays. Thanks for posting!

This is a great cake. I brought it to work today and have gotten lots of compliments on it. It was very easy to prepare. I bought Classic White frosting from the store. I heated it in the microwave and just kind of drizzled it on, and then sprinkled crushed candy canes on top. I should have waited a bit longer to do that part though, cause my frosting was still warm and the candy bled a bit. It still looked pretty though!

Cool, sweet delight! I love this pretty peppermint cake. I purchased a frosting, white chocolate and added just about a 1/4 tsp. peppermint extract to it, wonderful.
