For the purpose of writing this review, we had the opportunity to choose whatever we wanted from Harry & David's holiday bakery. Given the variety available, it took a lot of careful consideration.

Ultimately, we chose the Eggnog Cake ($24.99), a buttery bundt cake studded with tangy currants and covered with a lightly spiced streusel-style topping and a drizzle of icing that adds just the right amount of sweetness.

Our cake arrived tightly wrapped for freshness and snug in its own custom-fit box. We simply unwrapped it, popped it onto a serving plate and stored it (covered) in the refrigerator until an hour before serving.

Serving Suggestions:
The rich eggnog flavor of this cake makes it a great dessert choice to pair with just about any Christmas dinner menu, but it would also be a great addition to a holiday brunch.

We taste tested it with a few different beverages, our favorites being eggnog flavored coffee and a classic glass of rum-spiked eggnog with a sprinkling of nutmeg.

The Eggnog Cake is the second cake we sampled from Harry & David. For Thanksgiving, we tried the Caramel Apple Layer Cake, and despite the fact that we're diehard do-it-yourselfers when it comes to food, we have to admit it would be tough to tell these cakes from homemade.
