White Cake with Cookie Butter Filling

I made this White Cake with Cookie Butter Filling after my wife found out I was going to send out a newsletter for Memorial Day, she asked if she could try something a little funky to include in the newsletter. I told her to go for it.

Apparently, she had seen this cake on Instagram that had this mosaic on the side of it. She wanted to try and do something similar but using some of the recipes already posted on this site.

White Cake with Cookie Butter Filling

She started off by using my Perfect White Cake recipe and my Cream Cheese Frosting recipe. My wife often likes to fly by the seat of her pants when it comes to decorating so I wasn’t sure what to expect.

As she was putting the cakes together, she thought that white cake with a cream cheese filling was a little too boring so she decided to add a little cookie butter into the cream cheese frosting she had just made.

Tips

  • While you can pretty much use any brand of cream cheese, I highly recommend you use Philadelphia brand cream cheese. You will taste the difference.

In the end, the cake turned out pretty good if I do say so myself. Not only did it taste great, but looked pretty cool as well. If you use your imagination you can make a cool cake like this for any occasion by changing up the color of the candy you use.

For the Cake
