Mrs. Claus' Cranberry Christmas Cake

This delicious Cranberry Cake Recipe is one of Santa's favorites.

Santa and I love tradition and cranberries are very traditional. Did you know that some of today's cranberry bogs are more than 100 years old?

Another fun fact about fresh cranberries is that they have small pockets of air in them. That's why they float in their bogs!
