  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 and 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 4 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 cup chopped white chocolate
  • 1 cup maraschino cherries, drained and chopped
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • Additional maraschino cherries and white chocolate curls for garnish


  1. Prepare the Cake Layers: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and grease and flour two 9-inch round cake pans, preparing them for the decadent cake layers to come.
  2. Combine Dry Ingredients: In a medium bowl, sift together the all-purpose flour, baking powder, and salt, setting aside this delicate mixture of dry ingredients.
  3. Cream the Butter and Sugar: In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened unsalted butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy, setting the stage for a moist and tender cake.
  4. Incorporate Wet Ingredients: Beat in the eggs, one at a time, and then stir in the vanilla extract, infusing the batter with rich flavor and texture.
  5. Alternate with Dry Ingredients: Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, alternating with the whole milk, beginning and ending with the dry ingredients, ensuring a smooth and well-incorporated batter.
  6. Fold in White Chocolate and Cherries: Gently fold in the chopped white chocolate and maraschino cherries, adding a burst of sweetness and decadence to our cake batter.
  7. Bake the Cake Layers: Divide the batter evenly between the prepared cake pans and smooth the tops with a spatula. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cakes comes out clean, indicating their perfect doneness.
  8. Cool and Prepare Whipped Cream: Allow the cakes to cool in the pans for 10 minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely. In the meantime, whip the heavy cream with the confectioners’ sugar until stiff peaks form, creating a light and airy topping for our cake.
  9. Assemble the Cake: Place one cake layer on a serving plate and spread a layer of whipped cream over the top. Place the second cake layer on top and cover the entire cake with the remaining whipped cream, ensuring a smooth and luxurious finish.
  10. Garnish and Refrigerate: Garnish the cake with additional maraschino cherries and white chocolate curls, adding a touch of elegance and charm. Refrigerate the cake for at least 1 hour before serving, allowing the flavors to meld together and creating the perfect texture.
