Holiday Grinch Bundt Cake

How the Grinch Stole Christmas is one of my favorite movies to watch around Christmas time. I prefer the Jim Carey version vs the cartoon version of this movie.

Last year, the theme around our house was inspired by this movie. We decked the house in green, red and yellow. We had a blast. If you have plans to decorate your home or looking for a good holiday bundt cake, here’s one inspired by the Grinch!

Enjoy!
