Is it liqueur or syrup?

You can use creme de menthe syrup to soak a peppermint cake, The liqueur, which is stronger in flavor, would be good in sorbet, buttercream, panna cotta, or whipped cream, as a garnish for a chocolate dessert.

There are several ways you can approach this:

You can soak layers of a white or chocolate sponge cake, and fill it with a buttercream or whipped cream filling (vanilla, chocolate or peppermint).

You could do a twist on baba au rhum, filling the center with ice cream and crushed candy canes (This is good for Christmas time, but also a nice way to use up any candy canes you might have after the holiday).

Or you might try a pound cake, soaked in CDM syrup, served with a mocha sorbet.
