Santa's Favorite Cake
January 21, 2011

This was delicious! I cheated a bit though. For the cake, I used Betty Crocker white cake mix and Duncan Hinz Red Velvet cake. I prepared them per the box instructions, rather than adding anything too them. Rather than swirl the two different colored cakes together, I baked the whole red velevet mix in one 9" pan for 50 minutes and the whole white cake mix in a separate 9" pan for 50 minutes. after the cakes had cooled, I cut the dome off of the tops and used a piece of dental floss, I cut the cakes, width-wise, into 2 layers so that I had 4 total layers. I made the frosting recipe per the directions but used 1/2 of the peppermint extract as many recommended. This was just the right amount of mint for me. I then frosted the cakes, icing in between each layer and on the outside. When the cake was sliced, it looked like a candy cane on the inside!
