    As for a top holiday flavour, I’d have to say that Red Velvet is visually the most festive and easy to dress up/down, but taste-wise, white chocolate cake with clementine and cranberry buttercreams scream “Christmas” to me.

    Now, if I had another KA mixer, I’d be able to make cake batter AND SMBC at the same time. Having to wash up in between each use really slows me down!
