Gingerbrade cake is a popular cake at Christmas or during this holiday season. It is very nice, especially if you have a party where you want to impress your guest with cake decorating. Using the gingerbread cookies we made, just string it around the cake, sprinkle with a little dried coconut, it can be part of your Christmas decor. The cake is very moist and soft, I refer to both the egg-free and the egg-free version. I hope this will inspire you to make this cake for Christmas. Merry Christmas already.
