At Christmastime, there are so many great baking ideas to celebrate the season. Sometimes it’s hard to decide which ones you want to try.
I ran across a recipe for candy cane cake that caught my attention. After deciding to make it, I looked at the recipe more closely to discover it was made with an angel food cake. For some reason this did not sound like a tasty combination with the peppermint so I went an entirely different direction.
Instead of the angel food version, I made a mocha peppermint cake and made up the recipe on the spot.
