gluten free candy cane cakesCandy canes can make any cake or cupcake turn into a magical winter treat. All you need to do is take some gluten-free candy canes (click here to see my favorite brand) and crush them up.  Sprinkle them on top of your favorite frosted treat and you will end up with a beautiful creation that looks like it is from a bakery.

Some of my favorite ways to use the candy canes:

1.  Make a vanilla cake from your favorite mix.  Add 1 teaspoon of peppermint extract to the batter.  Bake and allow to cool.  Frost with frosting (I like the Betty Crocker canned frostings).  Sprinkle with crushed candy canes.

2.  Take two chocolate or sugar cookies.  Place frosting between the two cookies and make a sandwich with the frosting.  Roll the edge of the cookies in the candy canes and they will stick to the frosting for a beautiful holiday sandwich cookie.

3.  Make chocolate cupcakes from your favorite mix.  Allow to cool.  Add 1 teaspoon of peppermint extract to a can of chocolate or vanilla frosting and stir to combine.  Sprinkle with candy canes.
