The birthday girl had been asking to eat candy canes recently, and that was my inspiration for this cake. That, and her grandmother who really likes peppermint patties was able to be here for the party.

Anyway, all the candies were peppermint, and I added some peppermint oil to the frosting to make it super-yummy, too. The cake inside was a chocolate pound cake. The whole chocolate-mint combo was just about perfect to my taste.
In fact, this whole cake was a big success. The birthday girl loved it, and it was so easy to just smear on a layer of frosting with a knife and push in the candies to decorate. I even had the right color yarn handy, too.
