White Chocolate Bundt Cake with Whipped Cream Cheese Frosting


I am not much of a cake person. I just have never found one that had the right density and taste. My mom LOVES cake and a few weeks ago we set out to make the perfect melt in your mouth cake that I would love to. This. IS. It. This cake is like velvet on the tongue. An entire cake barely lasts a day in our house. We all love it so much. We have tried lots of different variations on the cake, but this is one of my favorites, White Chocolate with Whipped Cream Cheese Frosting. 

For the Cake: 


  • 1 package white cake mix (I like the Duncan Hines Mix for these cakes)
  • 1 small box instant white chocolate pudding
  • 1 C. sour cream
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/2 c. water
  • 1/2 c. oil


Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Combine all of the ingredients. Pour the mixture into a greased 10" inch bundt pan. Bake for about 45 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean. Let cool for 15 minutes and then remove the cake from the pan. It is best to remove the cake from the pan right at 15 minutes, If you wait a shorter or longer amount of a time it can be hard to remove the cake cleanly from the pan.

For the frosting: 

  • 16 oz softened cream cheese
  • 1 1/2 c. powdered sugar
  • 1 t. vanilla
  • 1 c. heavy cream


Beat the cream cheese, sugar and vanilla together until smooth. In a different bowl beat the cream until stiff peaks form. Combine the frosting ingredients and beat just until combined. Do not beat very long. Scoop the frosting into a pastry bag and cut the end. Loop over the cake to evenly spread the frosting. 


Stay tuned for all sorts of amazing variations of this fantastic cake!

This looks AWESOME! You could put cream cheese frosting on almost anything and I'd be on board, but that cake looks so perfect too! Love how simple the ingredients list is.

I love Bundt cake. I think they are so moist and this one really sounds yummy. The amount of icing you used is perfect for me - I think it is my favorite part.

It is not often where I see a picture of a cake and I can tell how soft and moist it is. This looks amazing!!

Dollhouse Goddesses said...

What a beautiful presentation. We can't help but think of "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" when we see a bundt cake. There's a hole in this cake, is something wrong with it? lol

Erin Shebish said...

Okay, so that looks amazing. Seriously. The frosting looks so lovely too. I'm pinning this for later!

You did an amazing job with this and the frosting just totally made it stand out. You nailed it! I would love to give this a try but just can't see me even coming close to perfecting it like you did. :)

This cake is absolutely beautiful! I bet it tastes as good as it looks. I can't wait to try to make it.

Bundt cakes are my favorite! I love making different flavors and icing (although most of the time I stick to the classic Philadelphia cheese). I haven't tried your recipe yet so I will definitely look forward to making it! Thanks for sharing!

Rebecca Kelsey Sampson said...

I absolutely LOVE the way you styled the cake. I would never have thought to distribute the frosting this way but it totally adds to the overall appeal. Now that I think about it, when was the last time I had a bundt cake? I'm going to need to fix this.

Hannah Adkins said...

I love the design that you used with the icing. It looks so gorgeous and yummy!

Erlene A said...
