This here fruitcake ain’t your grandmas Christmas fruitcake!
This my friends ~ is a California Fruit Cake!
And we all know they do things just a little bit better in California! Am I right?
No dried fruit loaves here, today we are spreading some sunshine all over the joint with beautiful Golden Vanilla Cake layers filled with fresh vanilla pastry cream; all smothered in vanilla whipped cream.
This cake is so light, so refreshing and so EASY you will think you are California Dreamin’!
It is a Building on Recipes project as with any layer cake, so be sure to prepare your cake and filling in advance so the assembly of this cake will happen in less than 20 minutes!
Now of course you can always change up the flavors to your liking.
Even chocolate cake would be amazing!! Why not!! That is right up my alley!
I baked 1 layer 12" X 18" also known as the half sheet pan prepared with pan grease & a parchment liner
Whatever recipe you decide for the cake you will pour all the batter into the half sheet pan and then cut the cake in half once it is cooled and baked to get 2- ¼sheet sized layers
