Never one to be shy about celebrating even the smallest holiday, St. Patrick’s Day is one of those occasions where I feel the festivities are basically an excuse to get blitzed. With that in mind, I wanted to embrace part of that spirit with this ombré cake (recipe here, dyed green) with Bailey’s buttercream frosting and topped with a pot-of-gold-inspired dusting.

My son declared this white cake recipe as “perfect” while the Mister said, “Now, that’s cake.” Umm, from him, that’s a good thing.
While many white cake recipes use only egg whites, I decided (after lots and lots of trying, mind you) that I preferred the flavor that the whole egg lends to the cake. While the cake isn’t stark white, it is still white.

My white cake recipe is a sturdy recipe. Tender, yet moist and holds together well from cooling to frosting to slicing and serving. It just works.
