Plain or Fancy Christmas Cakes

Besides having the longest name ever, this bundt cake has a creative, colorful garnish to make it cover-worthy. While we thought the shards of sugared candy were pretty, readers mistook them for glass shards, and the calls poured in. - Photo Jennifer Davick / Styling Buffy Hargett / Food Styling Rebecca Kracke Gordon

Amaze your guests with these simply beautiful Bundts. They're so easy--but only you will know.

Easy Christmas Cake Recipes

Good to the last crumb, a Bundt cake is as grand as a layer cake but far less fussy. A gentle tap sends it tumbling from one pan, perfectly fluted and party ready. Plus, our creations work for any occasion. Dress them up or simply present them with a light dusting of powdered sugar, either way they're fabulous. They also freeze beautifully, feed a houseful of guests, and travel remarkably well. Just don't expect to bring back any leftovers.
