It’s finally here, the only show-stopping dessert you need this holiday season. This beautiful gingerbread layer cake is exactly what you should be serving guests at your next dinner party or gathering. The recipe is adapted from my favorite magazine Bake from Scratch and I’m officially obsessed! I think this is the best gingerbread cake I’ve ever tasted, with wonderful molasses and spiced flavor, but still so light and tender. I frosted the whole thing with vanilla bean cream cheese frosting and added sugared cranberries and herbs for a little flourish of red and green.

Get ready to wow everyone with this cake, it’s sure not to last long!
