i might be in heaven!

i remember buying the december issue of sunset magazine simply because this cake caught my eye... it looked like the epitome of christmas, all decked out in red & white. i never quite got around to making it (probably had something to do with the fact that i had a newborn & another little guy who wasn't quite 2 yet, running around crazily, keeping me a bit busy). but now that i have everything & everyone "under control" (wink! wink!) perhaps i'll take a stab at the recipe. (although i still have to find a pretty green pedestal to proudly display it on!) worse case scenario (but the more i think about it, the better it sounds)... i could always just do the short-cut version & just start with a store bought angel food cake. i bet it would make a pretty trifle too... just layer angel food chunks, whipped cream (or cool whip) & the candy cane pieces. okay, now i'm definitely hungry.

Let me know how it turns out. I think, unfortunately, it's got my name on it. I'll have to try it, too.

Kel, I just received my darling girly aprons today! (I can't stand it they're so cute!) I want to give them to my girls tomorrow so we can get the cutest picture baking this cake! Thanks so much

I've eaten that cake in two versions. I seem to get around where cake is concerned. My friend who made it with her best chocolate cake recipe for the cake part was my favorite, but I just love chocolate! Thanks for reminding me of this.. there is nothing prettier for the holidays!
