I started with simple recipes to making complicated and fascinating desserts. I am planning to join university next year, overseas, to become a professional pastry chef.

This recipe is not just delicious but its super easy to make! I usually make this cake during the holidays when my family and friends come over.

You can decorate it with Christmas sprinkles and even some piped buttercream.

This cake lasts for about 4-5 days in the fridge or at room temperature in an airtight container.

It’s the perfect Christmas recipe with a secret hint of peppermint. Make sure to try it.
