This was originally made as cupcakes for a Cupcake Wars contest in the Hudson Valley but people were asking to make this into a cake so it evolved. Enjoy!

How to Make White Godiva Martini Cake

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Cream sugar and butter, beat until light and fluffy
  3. Add eggs one at a time and mix well after each addition.
  4. Add food coloring, sour cream, buttermilk and vanilla and mix well.
  5. Sift together flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder and cocoa. Add flour mixture alittle at a time. DO NOT over mix, it will ruin the texture of the cake.
  6. Pour batter into 3 (8-inch) round greased and floured pans. Bake for 20 - 30 minutes or until toothpick comes out alittle crumbly. Remove from heat and cool completely before frosting.

    NOTE: All ovens are different these time is approximate. Always a good idea to calibrate your ovens to make sure it is truly the temperature you want it to be.
  7. For Filling:
  8. Cream together the cream cheese and butter.
  9. Add the confectioners sugar and vanilla extract until full incorporated.
  10. Add White Godiva Liquer and heavy cream to the cream cheese mixture and whip until fluffy
  11. For Frosting:
  12. Cream butter (yes 4 sticks of butter) and vanilla together. Add the confectioners sugar until fully incorporated.

    Note: Buttercream is 2 sticks of butter to 3 cups of confectioners sugar. This is a double batch so that you are able to decorate your cake when you are done icing it.
  13. Alternate adding White Godiva Liquer and heavy cream until desired icing consistency.
