This white chocolate cranberry cake features white cake smeared with cranberries and luscious cream cheese frosting. Great for the holidays!
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.
