Festive White Cake with Raspberry Sauce

by Alli

This Festive White Cake with Raspberry Sauce is delicious all year round, but I really enjoy making it during the holidays because it’s so pretty.

I actually found fresh raspberries at my local, small-town grocery store. It’s a miracle! You can also use frozen raspberries in this recipe.

Festive White Cake with Raspberry Glaze

This cake is so easy to make because it begins with a white cake mix. You can see how I amp up the flavor of cake mixes here.

If you need a festive cake for a holiday potluck or when cooking a special meal for the family, this is the cake. It bakes in a 9x13x2 pan. Once it’s cool, frost it and serve it with the raspberry sauce.

Let’s Make a Festive White Cake with Raspberry Sauce

Bake the cake according to the directions on the package.

Bake the Cake for Festive White Cake

Helpful Hint: Once the cake has cooled, whip the heavy whipping cream. Be sure and leave the whipping cream in the fridge until ready to whip.

Whip until stiff peaks form – about 6-7 minutes. You don’t want to overwhip or under-whip. If you overwhip, you’ll make butter! I won’t reinvent how to whip cream, so you can read all about it here.

This Festive White Cake is so popular with family and friends

After beating the cream cheese and powdered sugar, fold in the whipped cream and spread over the cooled cake. Store in the fridge until time to serve.

Right before serving, gently combine the raspberries with water and strawberry glaze.

I find the glaze in the produce department of my local grocery store. Ain’t nobody got time to be making homemade glaze during this busy time of the year.
