A Tribute to the Perfect Party Cake

Carol of mix, mix…stir, stir chose Dorie’s Perfect Party Cake this week.  It truly is a perfect cake.  I first made it when it was chosen by the Daring Bakers in March 2008.  It was the perfect choice for an Easter dessert.  It was a huge hit, and it was devoured quickly, and several people went back for a second piece.  David talked about that cake for several days and over the next few months, he would talk about it and how he wanted me to make it again.  Over the summer, when we went to the beach with his extended family, I made two cakes, and the Perfect Party Cake was one of them.  It was a big hit then too.

I made it for a third time in October, and paired it with raspberry buttercream.  I love Dorie’s buttercream frosting recipe, but this was a great pairing as well.   Finally, last week, when I was looking for a cake to make for my decorating class, I made the Perfect Party Cake again. It’s the perfect cake for any occasion. I rarely make the same dessert more than once, but the fact that I’ve made this cake four times in a little over a year should tell you something!  I’ve never met anyone who didn’t like this cake.  I’ve made it four times, and I know I’ll keep making it again and again!
