This cake is out of this world! I got everyone hyped about it when I spoke of making it for my Mom's birthday. This recipe calls for store-bought lemon curd but I like to use Bev's Lemon Curd recipe!

Directions

  1. For the cake:.
  2. Melt 6 oz of white chocolate chips in the microwave for about 2 minutes, stirring half way through.
  3. Depending on the power of your microwave you may need more or less time.
  4. Be sure to watch carefully so that the white chocolate doesn't burn.
  5. Cool the white chocolate slightly.
  6. Add to the remainder of the cake ingredients and mix well.
  7. Pour into two 8-inch round cake pans which have been lined with greased aluminum foil.
  8. Bake 28 to 32 minutes or until a cake tester comes out clean.
  9. Allow to cool in pans for 10 minutes before turning out onto a rack to cool completely.
  10. For the frosting:.
  11. Melt the 6 oz white chocolate chips in the microwave using the same procedure as before.
  12. Let cool slightly.
  13. Meanwhile combine the rest of the ingredients.
  14. Add the melted white chocolate.
  15. Beat with a mixer until fluffy.
  16. For the assembly:.
  17. Spread one of the cooled cakes with lemon curd.
  18. Place the second cake on top.
  19. Frost the top and the sides of the cake.
  20. I prefer to keep this cake refrigerated due to the cream cheese frosting.

The cake turned out great (although it does taste like a box mix, I think). Make sure you follow the directions to sift the powdered sugar. I tried to skip that step, and the frosting did NOT turn out. Overall, it was a hit.

Great cake recipe! Made it and it turned out perfect! I tried the jam filling version from Wildflour but it was very very sweet and rich! The icing makes up heaps! I had enough left over to do another cake top as well. I am going to make it with the lemon curd filling alone next time to try that. Thanks for the recipe! Will be in my favourites!
