Everything's coming up roses. A stunning piping technique completely transforms layers of white cake (which start with a boxed mix, mind you) into a blooming rose. Our deceptively simple White Cake with Berry-Swiss Meringue Buttercream Frosting will be the star of the show at any gathering, from a birthday soiree to tea time.
Starting with boxed cake mix is the time-saving hack that leaves you with plenty of time to spend making the real star of this layer cake: homemade Swiss meringue buttercream. Fluffy, billowy, and not overly sweet, the raspberry frosting gives this cake a tart flavor and beautiful pink color. There's not a drop of food coloring in this pretty pink dessert. The freeze-dried raspberries (available at Target, Whole Foods Market, and other retailers) add a nice rosy hue and a bit of tang to offset the richness of the buttercream. If the frosting separates a little as you are making it, pop it in the refrigerator for 15 minutes. Then continue to beat again.
