I live in the ever so beautiful Orange County in Southern California, So even though we can almost go to the beach every day and wear dresses and sandals year round, this means we barely have a winter. Although if its cold enough, we will be able to see snow capped mountains in the distance, it is rare for me to see it in person.
Now that you know about where I live, let's get to the reason why I brought this up. The absence of the cold snowy weather is exactly what inspired this cake. The thought of waking up in the morning to a blanket of snow outside my window, and to sipping on some peppermint mocha while I watch fresh snow fall from the sky.
There is a hint of peppermint in the the chocolate layers and actual bits of candy canes in the filling. Together all these flavors make a winter wonderland in your mouth.
