This will easily be the most colorful dessert on my Christmas table. Candy canes are my favorite Christmas candy - I love that I have another way to enjoy them now!

Oh my gosh, I love the idea of adding crushed candy canes to a funfetti cake! The peppermint flavor is so festive.

This cake is so cute and fun! My family usually has pie and cookies for holiday desserts, but now I'm wondering if we should introduce a cake into the mix. This recipe has me thinking yes!

Funfetti cake is a childhood favorite of mine for birthdays or graduations but I have never thought to make a Christmas version. LIFE CHANGING!!!
