White Chocolate Cake with White Chocolate Whipped Frosting

During the summer I was at an event where this cake was served, and everyone there fell in love with it.  I immediately knew I needed to make this for my son, the self proclaimed cake aficionado. 
My recipe has been adapted to make a standard size cake ( 9 x 13 pan), while the original recipe makes a half sheet cake size.  I have posted the recipe for the larger size cake at the bottom of page.
These photo's are from the 1st cake I made, the 1/2 sheet size cake.
The adapted recipe makes a much thicker/taller cake.

WHITE CHOCOLATE CAKE WITH WHITE CHOCOLATE WHIPPED FROSTING

1 (18.75 oz) box golden vanilla cake mix
1 (3.4 oz) box instant white chocolate pudding mix
3 eggs
3/4 c. oil
1 c. sour cream

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large mixing bow, combine all of the cake ingredients and beat for 2-3 minutes.
Pour the batter into a 9 x 13 baking pan that has been coated with non stick spray.
Back for 28-32 min or until a toothpick inserted near the center of the cake comes out clean.
Cool completely.

WHITE CHOCOLATE WHIPPED FROSTING

1 3/4 c. whipping cream
1/4 c. sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 c. milk
1 (3.4 oz) box instant white chocolate pudding mix

In a large mixing bowl partially whip the cream until it is about 1/2 way thickened.
In a medium mixing bowl combine the milk and pudding mix and whisk until it is just mixed. Pour the pudding mix into the half whipped cream and continue to whip until the frosting is thick and spreadable.  Add the sugar and vanilla extract and continue to mix until it is the desired consistency that you like.
Spread on cake and serve.


Note:  I like to chill this cake for a couple of hours before serving and I love serving it with fresh fruit.
