Yum Alert: Peppermint Cheesecake Layer Cake

See this gorgeous cake? With its vanilla frosting and light pink layers, and white floury cake? This is the reason why I work out. Plain and simple, I run so I can eat.

This holiday season, Peppermint Cheesecake seems to be the ultimate treat. I’m actually surprised it took us so long to put these two delicious desserts together.

1/2 cup sugar

2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened

3 large eggs

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1/4 teaspoon peppermint extract

2/3 cup crushed hard peppermint candies

Sour Cream Cake Layers:
