So what is better than a big stack of holiday presents? Well, holiday presents you can eat of course! Er...on second thought, that holds true unless the presents are diamonds, cashmere, etc... you get the picture!
The base cake is a 14" spice cake with layers of yummy Brown Sugar Swiss Meringue (add a touch of cinnamon or allspice to this recipe for a little extra taste).
The presents on top of the large cake are made of tiny layers of almond frangipane cake sandwiched together with apricot jam.
