Most Holy Name of Mary Cake

Looks familiar, huh? Except on the inside. When I asked the girl celebrating her nameday today if she wanted another Jell-O poke cake she said, "I didn't really like it very much, but it was pretty!" She thinks this one is pretty too! It has a layer of blueberry preserves in the middle and white buttercream frosting. I wanted to make some white chocolate cream cheese frosting but didn't have white chocolate. Or cream cheese. Can you tell it's time to restock the pantry? The cake is a recipe adapted from the Cake Mix Doctor:

Bride's Cake

1 white cake mix
3 Tbl. half and half plus enough 1% milk to equal 1 C.
1 stick butter, melted
3 large eggs
2 tsp. pure vanilla extract

Mix on low for 60 seconds. Mix at medium speed for two minutes. Bake according to cake mix package directions.

  1. Darling! Have a blessed nameday.

    Pax -

    ~God calls each one by name (Cf. Is 43:1; Jn 10:3). Everyone's name is sacred. The name is the icon of the person. It demands respect as a sign of the dignity of the one who bears it. (#2158, Catechism of the Catholic Church).

  2. Beautiful! We're having Blueberry Cream Pie.

  3. Barbara,
    I wish my kids liked blueberries because I would love to do more with them. I did put a layer of blueberry preserves in the middle of the cake. I figured they could eat around that if they didn't like it! Can't wait to see your Blueberry Cream Pie!

  4. Very nice. Looks delicious.

  5. Your cake is as beautiful as always. May I ask for your buttercream frosting recipe, too? It looks delicious!

  6. Charlotte,
    Great job. You're daughter is lucky to have such a great mom. Happy name day to her.
