Ingredients:

 

For the cake:

 

2 cups all-purpose flour

1 ½ cups granulated sugar

1 cup white chocolate chips (melted and cooled)

½ cup unsalted butter (softened)

1 cup milk

3 large eggs

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

 

For the frosting:

 

1 ½ cups white chocolate chips

1 cup heavy cream

½ cup unsalted butter

4 cups powdered sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

 

PREPARATION:

 

Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour two 9-inch round cake pans.

In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy.

Add the melted white chocolate to the butter-sugar mixture and mix well.

Beat in the eggs, one at a time, ensuring each is fully incorporated before adding the next. Add the vanilla extract as well.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour and baking powder.

Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, alternating with the milk. Begin and end with the dry ingredients. Mix until just combined.

Divide the batter evenly between the prepared cake pans and smooth the tops.

Bake in the preheated oven for about 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cakes comes out clean.

Once baked, let the cakes cool in the pans for about 10 minutes, then remove them from the pans and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

For the frosting, melt the white chocolate chips in a microwave or over a double boiler. Let it cool slightly.

In a mixing bowl, beat the softened butter until creamy. Add the melted white chocolate and vanilla extract, and mix well.

Gradually add the powdered sugar, one cup at a time, alternating with the heavy cream. Beat until the frosting is smooth and creamy.

Place one cake layer on a serving plate. Spread a layer of frosting on top. Place the second cake layer on top and frost the top and sides of the cake with the remaining frosting.

You can decorate the cake with additional white chocolate chips, shaved white chocolate, or any other desired toppings.

Refrigerate the cake for a couple of hours before serving to allow the frosting to set.

 

 

Pro Tips for Perfection:

 

To ensure your cake layers are even, weigh the batter and divide it equally between the pans.

Use good quality white and dark chocolate for the best flavor.

For a smoother batter, make sure your melted chocolates are at room temperature before incorporating them.

When drizzling the dark chocolate, be creative with your swirls to achieve a visually stunning effect.
