How to Make It

Step 1

Prepare frosting; cover and chill. Place white chocolate in a bowl. Pour boiling water over white chocolate; stir until smooth. Set aside, and let cool.

Step 2

Grease 3 (9") round cakepans; line with wax paper. Grease and flour wax paper. Set aside.

Step 3

Beat butter at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy; gradually add sugar, beating well. Add egg yolks, 1 at a time, beating after each addition until blended. Stir in white chocolate and vanilla.

Step 4

Combine buttermilk and soda. Add flour to butter mixture alternately with buttermilk mixture, beginning and ending with flour. Mix at low speed after each addition until blended.

Step 5

Beat egg whites at high speed until stiff peaks form. Gently fold into batter. Pour batter into prepared pans.

Step 6

Bake at 350° for 20 to 22 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pans 10 minutes; remove from pans, and cool completely on wire racks.
