Blogger Arlene Cummings of Cooking With Sugar shares a favorite recipe. Pretty, festive desserts are one of the things that make holiday time so much fun. I love baking and serving this beautiful cake because the pink icing against the rich chocolate cake is just beautiful and the peppermint kick makes it extra special.
Frosting can be made a day ahead of time.
If frosting gets too soft during use, put it in the refrigerator for a few minutes.
If you like a stronger peppermint taste, add 1/2 teaspoon of peppermint extract to the frosting.
