On the 12th Day of Christmas: I ended with my Vanilla Bean Noel Bundt Cake

On the 12th Day of Christmas, I ended with one of my favorite bundt cakes.  I just knew that our 12 days should end on a bundt cake…it just makes sense :).
This bundt cake is always one of my most requested.  Erika talks about it all the time…it’s just simple and delicious and would look fabulous on any holiday table.  The perfect ending to 12 wonderful days of sharing our Christmas cheer with you!

OK…it’s time to start singing…
On the 11th Day of Christmas…
On the 12th Day of Christmas…
Now, Christmas isn’t over!  Come back tomorrow for a yummy entree recipe!  Between now and the end of the year, I have more simple and delicious recipes for you!  
Merry 12 Days of Christmas!

    Loved all your recipes for the 12 days of Christmas. I have not been cooking much because I am 9 weeks pregnant with our fourth, and I am sick as a dog! It happens to me every time:( But I am looking forward to the day I can cook and eat like normal again. Your 12 Days of Christmas posts have been a bright spot in my day lately. Thanks Shay.
