Peppermint Fudge Cake

19

This Peppermint Fudge Cake is one of the best Christmas desserts. The homemade fudgy chocolate cake has no peppermint in the cake batter to prevent an overpowering flavor. Instead, the peppermint is added to the luscious buttercream frosting. You get a decadent layered chocolate cake with minty frosting in between each layer. It’s the perfect balance. Chocolate ganache is layered over the top of the cake, candy cane pieces decorate the sides, and swirled peppermint frosting is a finishing garnis
