Fruit Supreme Dream Cake

One of my favorite things to do for birthday parties is to bake cakes. I have baked completely “from scratch” cakes but prefer creating semi-homemade versions using cake mixes. (On the other hand, I believe cookies are always better and much more fun to create from scratch.)

For Micah’s birthday this year, I decided to create something different. I hoped it would turn out delicious because it was a new combination. I am happy to say it passed the Willis stamp of approval and will be in rotation again in the future. We enjoyed his birthday party and the cake too! There is nothing quite as special as celebrating with family.

While the cake is baking, blend the cream cheese and butter. Then, add the vanilla and preserves. Mix. Slowly add the powdered sugar until well blended.
After cake cools, add icing. The remaining Smuckers went on top of the second layer before I added icing. You can see some of it on the left side of the last photo. Lastly, decorate with fresh fruit of your choice.
