6 Gingerbread Cakes You Need to Make This Holiday Season

Gingerbread is one of my favorite Christmastime flavors. I love it as a simple cookie, and I love it even more as a cake! Here are 6 outrageously delicious gingerbread cakes that I know you’ll love as much as I do.

Salted Caramel Gingerbread Cake

Using my best gingerbread cake recipe, this Salted Caramel Gingerbread Cake is an absolute crowd pleaser thanks to the homemade salted caramel drizzle and caramel buttercream.

Gingerbread Cranberry Cake

I love to pair different flavor profiles and putting a tart cranberry compote with the warmth of gingerbread and the sweetness of a white chocolate buttercream – well, it’s just perfection!

Gingerbread Latte Cake

If you love gingerbread and caramel, you’re going to go nuts for my Gingerbread Latte Cake with coffee flavored caramel buttercream and toffee bits between the layers.

Gingerbread Cookie Cake

You know my love of gingerbread cookies, so it’s no surprise I put one right in the middle of a cake! My Gingerbread Cookie Cake has layers of gingerbread cake, gingersnap cookies, boiled milk frosting, and a cinnamon buttercream.

Lemon Gingerbread Cake

We can thank my mom for this flavor combination: lemon and gingerbread! It may be a unique flavor combination, but let me assure you, it’s incredibly delicious. The lemon curd and the lemon mascarpone frosting are simply divine!

Gingerbread Pear Cake

Last but not least, gingerbread and pear! A delicious pear jam and pear buttercream accompany these tender and flavorful gingerbread cake layers.

Can’t wait to hear which one(s) you make!

I’m a self-taught baker, obsessed with cake.

I long ago ditched box mixes in pursuit of melt-in-your-mouth, to-die-for flavor combinations, fillings and textures. I believe cake must be decadent, life-changing and worthy of celebration! And I believe anyone should be able to bake that kind of cake – and I’m here to teach you just that!
