These 20 Classy Christmas Cakes will delight your family and guests! There are cakes for every skill level!
In America, we often have pie for Christmas. In Japan, they have Christmas cake instead. It consists of two layers of sponge cake with strawberries and whipped cream in the middle. (Here’s a recipe from La Fuji Mama if you’d like to give it a try). Here in the states, we like the flavors of peppermint, chocolate, orange, and ginger around Christmas time. I thought it would be fun to round up some beautiful, delectable cakes you can make this holiday season. Some of them are super easy, and some of them take a little skill. But all are delicious and worthy of your holiday table!
This charming Snowy Gingerbread Village Cake on the Wilton blog really caught my eye!
