White Chocolate Limoncello Cake- Sweet Saturday + New Schedule

Hi everyone! I hope you all had a good week and are enjoying your weekend so far. I am somehow sick again with a terrible cold but my mom decided she would bake this cake quickly for me since she obviously didn't want me near her food! Today I will be watching the Alabama at LSU game and I am very nervous so I will be munching on this cake for sure! Hope you enjoy and Roll Tide Roll!

- 2 1/2 cups flour
-1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1 1/2 cups sugar
-3 eggs
-1/2 cup buttermilk
-1/2 cup limoncello (lemon-flavored) liqueur
- zest and juice or one lemon
-white chocolate shavings

Mascarpone Frosting:
- 16 ounces mascarpone cheese
- 1 1/4 cups lemon curd
- 2 cups chilled whipping or heavy cream
- 2/3 cups powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease  two 9 inch round cake pans. Line with parchment paper. Grease and flour parchment. Combine flour, baking soda, and salt with a wire whisk. Set aside. Cream butter and sugar. Add eggs one at a time. Add flour alternately with buttermilk and limoncello mixed with lemon juice.

Bake cakes for 20 to 25 minutes. Cool completely in pans. Once cool, remove from pans. Place on layer on serving plate. Frost top with 1/3 of frosting. Place second layer on top. Frost with one half of frosting. Use remaining to frost sides of cake. Decorate top with optional white chocolate shavings.

Cream together mascarpone cheese and lemon curd. Whip cream. Slowly add powdered sugar until all added. Fold cheese mixture into whipped cream. Mix until completely combined.
