Description

The perennial favorite layer cake is always a popular choice for a birthday party. This version gets its vibrant color from pomegranate juice in addition to food coloring, the juice also adding a subtle hint of tartness. And there's really no better choice than cream cheese frosting for the stark red and white contrasting color, and there's simply no reason to use anything but Philadelphia brand cream cheese (the bar variety, not from a tub) for the best tasting, fluffiest result.
