 Candy Cane Cake 

An angel food cake slathered with whipped cream and crushed candy ― it's been a favorite dessert in Molly Watson's family for three generations. "It was my childhood birthday request year after year," Watson says.

"Our topping was crushed toffee, but a few years ago at Christmas, I switched over to candy canes. It became our new holiday classic."

For a shortcut version, start with a store-bought angel food cake. The very fine candy "dust" left over from crushing the candy canes is delicious sprinkled on vanilla ice cream or stirred into hot cocoa.
