This month's timing was perfect for me because over the weekend we celebrated Mom's 94th Birthday. This Fudgy Peppermint Bundt was perfect as Mom's birthday cake. I also made some Fudgy Pepperming Cupcakes to go along with it since all the great grandkids were there to celebrate with Great Grandma. Guess who else showed up? The old man himself....Santa Claus.....he comes each year to help Mom celebrate.
I found this recipe for Fudgy Peppermint Bundt Cake on Pillsbury. com. I decided this would make a great cake for Mom's 94th Birthday Party.
Then, as we were getting ready for the party we ran into several road blocks that you can read about here. So when I went to the grocery store to get everything I needed for the party, I came across this cake mix with the fudgy center included. So in the interest of time and my sanity, I picked up 2 packages. One that I made into a bundt and the other that I made into cupcakes for Mom's great grandchildren. I added peppermint extract to the fudgy filling and I made a glaze to go over the bundt and frosting to go onto the cupcakes. Then I sprinkled them all with some crushed candy canes.
I am almost embarrassed to put the recipe on here but since that is the whole point of #BundtBakers, I guess I have no choice.
