Favorite Make Ahead Cake for Christmas?

sfcitygirl | Nov 27, 2007 01:11 PM

My husband and I are cooking Christmas dinner, and I would like to make a yummy, classic dessert. I tested out Roy Finamore's chocolate cake from Tasty this weekend. It was absolutely delicious, but tasted the best the day it was made.

Do you have any suggestions for cake recipes that I can bake the day before and then frost on Christmas? And would I store the cake in the fridge? Or is it OK to leave out?

I love cookbooks so I'm happy to pick up something new for the perfect cake.

And if cake is a terrible idea, I'm open to other suggestions too. Just nothing too wacky - my grandpa doesn't like "funny food". :-)

Thanks so much for your help!
