Perfect Party Cake

This Perfect Party Cake recipe comes from Dorie Greenspan’s must-have cookbook: Baking From My Home to Yours.

If you ever need the perfect cake for a special celebration– this is it! This Perfect Party Cake is made up of four thin layers of lemon cake layered with buttercream and raspberry. The whole cake is covered in freshly whipped cream and topped with more fresh raspberries. It’s an impressive cake!

The cakes in this recipe turn out perfect. I like to make mine in 8-inch pans rather than 9 as I prefer a taller layer cake. They bake up just right, lemon-scented and all, and they are very easy to turn out onto racks. They are firm enough to be handled easily but delicate enough for a nice, light cake. I always find myself scraping the crumbs off of the parchment paper to attempt to get a sampling of the cake flavor!

This Perfect Party Cake has four layers– because you’ll cut each of your cake layers in half.

The layers slice apart nice and evenly without too much effort at all. I spread my layers with raspberry jam, buttercream and halved raspberries.

The buttercream in this recipe is very good, but it’s also very rich. So I prefer to use freshly whipped cream to cover the exterior of the cake.
