Ingredients

Instructions

  1. In a mixing bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  2. Add the egg whites, vanilla extract and mix (I usually beat for 1 minute).
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and ground cinnamon.
  4. Beat the dry mixture into the wet mixture, alternating with milk, until just combined. The batter will be thick but DO NOT OVER-MIX!
  5. Pour the batter into three round greased/floured cake pans (Dimension: 8x2).
  6. Bake at 350 degrees for about 40 minutes on until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. The tops will be brown.
  7. Allow the cakes to cool down completely.
Assembling
  1. Trim the brown top and edges of one cake and place it on a cake stand.
  2. Use a spatula to frost the top of this cake with buttercream and gently, spread some apple pie filling on top of the frosting.
  3. Trim the brown top and edges of another cake and place it on top of the apple pie filling.
  4. Use a spatula to frost the top of this cake with buttercream and gently, spread some apple pie filling on top of the frosting.
  5. Decorate the top of the cake with a few cinnamon sticks.
  6. Toss some white chocolate shreds around the cake and on top of the cake.
  7. And you are done!
