White Chocolate Whiteout Cake

This weeks recipe is White Chocolate Whiteout mini cakes. Don’t be fooled by the pure, white, innocent looking cakes. They are a rich, more-ish bake. 

White chocolate Whiteout cake consists of layers of rich moist white chocolate cake covered with sweet white chocolate buttercream. Whats not to like!

Now I know I am bias having created the recipe but I will say it anyway. These mini cakes are quite possibly the best white chocolate cake I have ever eaten. I know big statement.

The cake is perfectly balanced with a soft, light, white chocolate frosting that melts in the mouth.

A few words of advice watch the colour of the butter you use if you want to keep the beautiful whiteness, a pale butter is best. I couldn’t find a pale butter in the supermarket so used traditional English butter, however I know that it is more accessible in other parts of the world. For my UK readers you can always add a few drops of white food colouring.
