Traditional candy cane colours.
Original winter flavour.
When I found a recipe in our LCBO magazine (which I had yoinked off my mother in law's counter - sorry, I'll bring it back!) that featured a red velvet cake (which is my son's fav) and white layers of minty whipped cream and white chocolate ganache I knew I wanted to make this for our family holiday dinner.
Bringin back the old school desserts - awesome. Maybe I should bring back the jello salads? NAAA
I should divulge I cheated a little.
I used a boxed red velvet cake mix. The recipe did give direction for making your own but, well, I didn't have time and my mother in law had given us a bunch of cake mixes (red velvet since its the Little Ughs fav) so might as well use em right?
If you have a favorite recipe for it please be my guest, replace it with your cake recipe or you could use the recipe supplied by the linked recipe below.
This is a beautiful presentation and a wonderful dessert to serve at your next gathering - but I would suggest not making it for 2.
I also suggest using a tad more peppermint extract. I used a touch more than the recipe called for but it really could have used another 1/2 tsp. or so.
Enjoy - we did!
