Thank you Katy Perry for my post title.
It all started with my go-to white cake recipe-
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup shortening (You only need to wig out if you eat the whole cake)
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3 tsps of baking powder
2 pinches of salt
1 cup heavy whipping cream
2 tsps of vanilla
Cream the shortening and sugar, add the eggs, then alternate the dry and milk. Finally gently mix in the vanilla. I use my Kitchen Aid to assist me. He is white and his name is Sam.
****WARNING---THIS CAKE IS DENSE*****
You can make 2- 8 or 9 inch rounds or 1- 9x13. Bake at 350 until a toothpick comes out clean. Sorry I don't have an exact time. It depends on the weather and the temperment of my oven.
Next comes the pokin' part. Have you ever heard of Jell-O. I hate Jell-O, except when it's poured into a cake. You heard me right, into a cake.
Now poke some holes in your cake with a fork or a toothpick. It feels good doesn't it. Don't worry it's our little secret. Take your favorite flavor of Jell-O. I chose black cherry because after all this is a Valentine's cake. Disolve the Jell-O in one cup of boiling water and pour it over your cooled cake. Then stick your cake in the fridge or freezer. That Jell-O needs to set.
Oh my YUM...
Since the cake wasn't already sweet enough I topped it with whipped white chocolate ganache.
