Looking for great layer cake recipes to cook for the holidays? I’ve got your back! These are some of the greatest and most delectable layer cakes for the ultimate Christmas dessert.
So many cakes, such little time, isn’t it? I want to create every single one of these cakes. It’s impossible to decide!
Let’s get started.
CAKE WITH CHOCOLATE PINE:
This first one is a design rather than a layer cake. If you want to get a bit more creative with your cake, add these adorable miniature pine cones on it. Check out my Chocolate Butter Cake recipe if you want to bake a lovely chocolate cake to go with these small pine cones.
This cake is adorable and would look great on your Christmas table.
