Pink Pineberry & Vanilla Butter Cake

2 Hours


Vanilla Cake:

  • 1/2 cup softened butter
  • 1 1/2 sugar
  • 4 egg whites
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/3 cups buttermilk
  • A few drops pink food coloring

Vanilla Buttercream & Toppings

  • Wish Farms Pink-A-Boo® Pineberries 
  • 2 cups unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 6-7 cups powdered sugar
  • 3-4 tablespoons heavy cream
  • A few drops pink food coloring


Vanilla Cake:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Grease two 8-inch baking pans and line them with parchment paper.
  • Cream the butter and sugar together for approximately 3 minutes.
  • Add the egg whites one at a time, mixing thoroughly after each addition, scraping the bowl when necessary. Add a few drops pink food coloring.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  • With the mixer on low speed, add the flour mixture and the buttermilk alternately, beginning and ending with the flour mixture.
  • Pour batter into prepared pans and bake for 18-20  minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cakes comes out clean.
  • Cool on a rack for 10 minutes, then loosen cakes from the sides of the pans and invert on a wire rack to cool completely before frosting.

Vanilla Buttercream & Toppings:

  • Whip the butter on high speed for 2-3 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally.
  • On medium speed, add 6 cups powdered sugar one cup at a time, letting each cup of sugar incorporate before adding the next.
  • Add the cream and salt gradually as you add the last cup of sugar. If it seems to stiff, add another 1-2 tablespoons of cream.
  • Add a few drops pink food coloring, then whip on high speed for 4-5 minutes.
  • Once cakes are completely cooled, add a large dollop of  buttercream to the center of the first cake, spread evenly, then stack the second cake on top.
  • Frost the double layer cake completely. Wash some Wish Farms Pink-A-Boo ® Pineberries with cool water and pat dry. Top and decorate your cake with a mix of halved or whole Pink-A-Boo® Pineberries
