This cake had a nice subtle peppermint flavor to it. The candy pieces on top ran though & it dried out within 2 days of making it.
This cake was way too sweet and soggy. I threw it out
Fairly easy to make, very pretty to serve and everyone loved it!
my crushed pepper mints bled all down my cake as well.Frosting needed to have a thicker consistency and sweeter taste. Next time I will add more confectioner's sugar. The cake itself was very light ,moist and airy.
Taste was great but cake was a disaster! I made the cake the day before a party. It baked up and decorated so beautifully. I put it in a cake carrier to bring to the party and when I got up the next morning the cake had melted, literally. The icing had not melted and run off the cake but the peppermint was melting and pulling the icing down so much it split the cake into 3 almost perfect sections. I was heartbroken but ate some anyway. Finally had to throw it out because it kept melting and running out of the cake keeper onto the cabinet. Icing never melted off the cake. It was the strangest thing I had ever experienced. Any suggestions?
Can you put sour cream if you are making from a box cake mix?
This was a hit! The cake baked up beautifully. I will definitely make this recipe again and try other flavoring in the frosting.

If you do not have sour cream to make it moist, Mayo also works to keep a cake moist and delicious. Works well in cake box recipes also.
