White Chocolate Cranberry Cake Recipe

I really wanted to post a cake before Christmas that you all can be excited about. I had a few cakes in mind, like dark chocolate cakes, but this one kept on coming to my mind. I think a cranberry cake is only appropriate before the Holidays and I am excited for all of you to try this one.

I love the combination of cranberry and white chocolate. If you like moist cakes, I would suggest soaking the sponge cakes with some cranberry juice. This cake is better when it sits overnight.

Instructions 

Prepare ingredient for the sponge cake. Whip eggs together for about 2 minutes.
Add in sugar and keep beating the eggs until while peaks.
In small portions, add in flour, slowly incorporate the flour into the eggs, just don't over mix.
Bake the cake in two separate baking pans, 9 or 11 inches would work. Bake at 350F for about 20 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Split each cake piece horizontally into two pieces.
Combine together cranberries with sugar and lemon juice in a sauce pan. Bring it to a simmer and let it cook for about 10 minutes. Remove it from the heat and let it cool to a room temperature.
Apply cranberry to each cake piece.
Prepare ingredients for the cake, make sure that butter and cream cheese is at a room temperature. Melt white chocolate in increments of 30 seconds, until it is all smooth. Let is cool down to a room temperature.
Whip together butter and cream cheese. Add white chocolate into the mixture, whip to combine it together. In a separate dish, whip whipping cream until you get stiff peaks and in small portions add it to the remainder of the cream.
Apply equal amount of cream between each layer of the cake and apply the remainder of the cream to outside of the cake.
To decorate the cake, dip pine needles and a few cranberries into water. Shake off some of it and sprinkle it with a generous amount of sugar, let it dry for a few minutes and add a bit more sugar. Place the decorations on top.
