  • Summary

    This White Chocolate Cranberry Layer Cake has so much flavor!

    Ingredients

    • 4 ounces (113.5g) white baking chocolate (I used Ghirardelli Premium Baking Bar and Bakers Premium Baking Bar to test the recipe)
    • 2 1/2 cups (285g) cake flour * if you do not have cake flour see Note below for substitution
    • 2 1/2 teaspoons (10g) baking powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon (3g) salt
    • 1 1/2 sticks (170g) unsalted butter, slightly softened (do not soften in the microwave)
    • 1 1/2 cups (300g) sugar
    • 2 large eggs, room temperature ( if in a hurry you can warm the eggs in a bowl of hot (not boiling) water for 5 minutes)
    • 2 teaspoons (8g) vanilla extract
    • 1 1/3 cup (314g) milk
    • 1 cup (90g) fresh or frozen cranberries - to help keep the cranberries suspended in the batter, cut into pieces.
    • Note: Cake flour substitution - For each cup of all purpose flour (plain in the UK) remove 2 Tablespoons and replace with 2 Tablespoons corn starch (corn flour in the UK). For this recipe, measure out 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour, remove 5 Tablespoons and replace with 5 Tablespoons corn starch. Whisk to blend.
    • 1 1/2 cup (180g) fresh or frozen cranberries
    • 3/4 cup (150g) sugar
    • 3/4 cup (180g) water
    • 1 stick (113 g) unsalted butter, softened
    • 1 package (8oz) ((226g) full fat cream cheese - it must be full fat, reduced fat or cream cheese in a tub will be too soft for the recipe.
    • 2 (4oz) (113.5g) white chocolate baking bars - I used Ghirardelli
    • 3 Tablespoons (12g) milk — for melting the white chocolate
    • 1 teaspoon (4g) vanilla extract
    • 6 cups (690g) powdered sugar
    • White Candy Coating (we used Candiquick)
    • Non-Toxic leaves of choice- We used Camellia leaves, washed and dried
    • Wax paper or parchment-lined cookie sheet
    • disposable piping bags
    • Small paintbrush
    • cranberries for garnish
    • Fresh sprigs of thyme (or rosemary, etc.) for garnish
    • small angled spatula
