When presentation and taste are both on the line this holiday season, let them eat cake.
There’s nothing new about cake, but we never seem to tire of it. Whether two layers or four, frosted with buttercream or “iced” with a pour of silky ganache, with or without a flavored filling between the layers, we’ll take cake any old way we can get it—especially at the holidays.
Here are some of our favorites—classic flavors that never get old no matter how many times we bake them.
