Daring to be like Dorie

It seems that time passes by quite fast recently, or I'm just really feeling my age LOL! It seems like only yesterday when I made Dorie Greenspan's Party Cake. I've made this cake A LOT last year, first for my mom's birthday, then for my sister's sister-in-law potluck party, then it was for my brother-in-law's grandfather's birthday. So this cake with it's name really is a party cake in my family.

The challenge for the uber popular Daring Bakers this month is Dorie's Party Cake. This month's event is hosted by none other than Morven from Food Art and Random Thoughts. I'm quite delighted and disappointed at the same time when I found out this month's challenge, disappointed because I get to do this cake all over again sad because for this month I won't be able to challenge myself in making something new. But in the end, I can say that I had fun doing it :) Like in my previous versions of this cake. I still can't get that white-white look like in the book which is weird and frustrating, me being very u-sy, I want it to be perfect, unfortunately I haven't found the right brand of butter so it won't be yellowish in color.
Hopefully by my next try I'll get that pristine white look :)
