This smelled wonderful whereas baking!  Vacation baking is one in all my favourite issues about this time of 12 months!  Being all cozy within the kitchen, listening to Christmas music and the fantastic aromas!  This scrumptious cake deserved an equally scrumptious frosting!  So I went with a easy vanilla buttercream (which is my favourite vegan frosting as of currently) with a contact of peppermint added.  It was excellent! I additionally included crushed up sweet desserts for a pleasant textural distinction and extra peppermint taste!

This cake turned out wonderful! It was so heavenly with the layers of swirled chocolate and vanilla peppermint scented cake and wealthy creamy vanilla peppermint buttercream with the crunchy sweet canes!  Even my Husband cherished it!  I ought to add he would not like sweet canes and is not at all times an enormous cake eater however requested for seconds of this one!  If you’re within the temper for one thing festive and yummy, positively give this Vegan Marble Peppermint Cake a attempt!
