Sparkling Cranberry Cannabis & White Chocolate Cake

Wow your guests, family and friends this Christmas with Sparkling Cranberry Cannabis & White Chocolate Cake!

The cake is incredibly moist and bursting with cranberry goodness.

The design itself is simple and elegant, and you can decorate it with anything Christmas you like!

I prefer to keep it simple, and then add a bunch of cranberries to my plate for more popping fun!

The cake is basically vanilla cake or cupcakes x 2!

And OH MY is it good! It is so moist and the flavor is comforting and yummy.

It’s easy to make – just throw it all in the mixing bowl, and throw in the cranberries when you’re done mixing.

The icing is loaded with white chocolate. I’m drooling just writing this because the icing is white chocolate ganache, cannabutter, and powdered sugar. Delicious!
