Hello and welcome to what I think is the last recipe post for 2015. I can’t believe this year has gone so quickly but here we are at almost the end. I had a couple of reader requests for a Christmas icebox cake so this is what I came up with. Cranberry Icebox Cake. It’s quite delicious and the cranberry layer has a fresh, tangy taste. My only disappointment was that I was hoping it would be a darker red. If you wanted to, you could add a few drops of red food coloring and that would do the trick.
For a more formal, dressier look you can garnish the pieces of cake with fresh cranberries and mint. For a fun and more casual party you could garnish with Christmas sprinkles. The sprinkles would be popular with a kid crowd I’m sure.
The best thing about icebox cakes is that you can make them ahead. In fact, they really need to sit in the refrigerator overnight to cut well. I had a bit of trouble cutting this one but when I ran my knife under hot water it was much, much easier. It went through like it was cutting butter.
I’ll be back on Thursday as part of a bHome Blogger Christmas event. We are getting together but it’s not a formal tour. We will be posting mostly single rooms or projects, not whole home tours. We’ve got some new bloggers on board who I think you will love. All very real and very nice.
Until then…take care.
