The frosting on this cake is a Swiss meringue buttercream. It spread nicely and is quite delicious. Use it for other cakes and cupcakes too.

Ingredients

Cake

1
box white cake mix with pudding in the mix
Water, oil and egg whites called for on cake mix box

Frosting

5
egg whites
1 1/4
cups sugar
1 1/2
cups butter, softened and cut into 1-inch pieces
1/2
teaspoon vanilla

Filling

1
package (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
1/2
cup blueberry preserves

Decoration

Crushed pink, light blue and purple rock candy

Directions

  • 1 MAKE CAKE, FROSTIG AND FILLING: Heat oven to 350°F (325° F for dark or nonstick pans). Grease 2 (8- or 9-inch) round pans with cooking spray or shortening. Make and bake cakes as directed on box with water, oil and egg whites. Cool in pans 10 minutes; remove from pans to cooling racks. Cool 20 minutes. Refrigerate layers 45 minutes for easier handling.
  • 2 Meanwhile, in small saucepan over medium heat, combine egg whites and sugar. Cook, stirring frequently, until egg whites reach 160° F. Remove from heat, transfer to electric mixer fitted with a whisk attachment. Whisk egg whites on high until white and shiny and the bowl of the electric mixer is no longer warm, about 8 to 10 minutes. Add butter, one piece at a time, until mixture is smooth and shiny. If mixture separates, continue to whisk until it comes together. Add vanilla. Reserve 1/2 cup frosting.
  • 3 In small bowl, beat together cream cheese and blueberry preserves with electric mixer at low until well combined. Fold in reserved frosting.
  • 4 ASSEMBLE AND DECORATE: Using serrated knife, cut rounded top off cakes to make a level surface. Cut each layer in half horizontally to make 4 layers total. Fill each layer with 2/3 cup blueberry mixture. Frost side and top of cake with remaining frosting. Press crushed rock candy up sides of cake with hands.
