How It’s Made
You’ll love the combination of flavors in this raspberry cake! The white chocolate cake layers are really something else! They are so tender and delicate, thanks to the addition of the white chocolate. It adds both moisture and flavor to the layers. Allow the cake layers to cool completely before cutting them or assembling the cake.
The delicate layers are then filled with an alternating combination of crushed, sweet raspberries and tart lemon curd. In my video recipe, I used store-bought lemon curd but you can also make my easy, 5-ingredient, homemade lemon curd. All that deliciousness is frosted with an equally amazing zesty lemon buttercream. To make the buttercream extra-tangy without adding too much liquids, I added citric acid to the mix. This buttercream really helps balance out the sweetness of the lemon cake and takes it to a whole new level.
Garnishing The Cake
To make this lemon cake extra pretty and special, I topped it off my one of my favorite macarons – Lemon Raspberry Macarons. This optional garnish really makes the cake stand out! You can also use store-bought macarons; Costco and Trader Joe’s have great options!
