Peppermint Hot Chocolate Cake: #BundtBakers

Peppermint Hot Chocolate Cake: #BundtBakers

The boring (but delicious) truth is that I took our treasured Extra Creamy Peppermint Marshmallows, made them, and then at the end of the beating stage, I beat in 1 tablespoon of heavy cream. It definitely deflated and thinned out the mixture. I would be curious to try it as a thicker topping also, but for this cake pan, a thinner glaze worked well I thought.
