Merry Christmas! You're probably enjoying the holidays with your family and having loads of fun! Some of you may even be hosting parties, with lots of yummy food! Speaking of food, Christmas celebrations are incomplete without cake, which is why we have an easy and delicious treat for you and your kids this Christmas - a Custard Marble Cake Recipe!

This cake is a great hit with my son who calls it 'tiger cake' because of the marble patterns that resemble stripes. He has started with his Playway and is learning about animals, which explains his name for the cake!

This cake tastes best when it's still a little warm, especially in winters! Serve with a milk of your choice or even some hot chocolate. Kids love the swirl patterns on the cake and the fact that there's chocolate involved! Who knows, your little one might come up with his own name for it! So here's wishing you a Merry Christmas again; enjoy the holidays!!
