Cranberry Vanilla Cream Cake Recipe

DSC_1002main

This cake is dense and moist; Layers of sponge cake, cranberry sauce and vanilla cream cheese frosting makes a perfect mix of sweet and tart.  And what I mostly love about it is that it’s simple to make, yet elegant enough to serve as a Christmas dessert. 
Sugar-coated cranberries make a festive seasonal garnish.
