EASY White Chocolate Buttercream Chocolate Cake


Made this cake a while ago for a friend and it was a big hit. I used 2 duncan hines triple chocolate cake mixes for the cake part. The white chocolate butter cream, was amazing and it was perfect to pipe. I based my recipe off the wilton recipe, but i added quite a bit more powdered sugar than it called for, and only a few table spoons of milk.






  • 18 ounces high quality white baking chocolate coarsely chopped, i used organic swiss white chocolate baking chips from whole foods.
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 cup solid vegetable shortening
  • 1 cup butter
  • 2 Teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 12 cups confectioners’ sugar
