Easy Vanilla Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

I created this post as part of a sponsored series with Socialstars and SPLENDA® Brand; all opinions are my own. #SweetSwaps #SplendaSweeties. Check out this delicious Sugar Free Vanilla Cake Recipe with Fresh Berries and Cream Cheese Frosting

Cream cheese frosting is a favorite of mine, especially when incorporating it into a vanilla cake from scratch.  I think it’s the highlight of the attached cake recipe , which also has fresh berries and a nice red, white and blue theme.  The recipe gets a lot of compliments, especially the frosting!   The 4th of July may have passed but it’s a very patriotic time with it being an exciting election year.  That plus everything going on in the world makes me more proud of America than ever before.

Cream cheese frosting recipes have been gaining traction, especially  Splenda cream cheese frosting recipes.  There’s good reason for it: it tastes great yet won’t spike your sugar intake.  This recipe uses  SPLENDA® Granulated which actually has a Made in America packaging… fits perfectly with my theme!  The blueberries and strawberries pep up the taste of this easy vanilla cake and definitely help out with the presentation.  I added a tad of kiwi and some flowers for presentation but those are optional.  I love the way these smaller cakes look, they are cute and are a great size for two people to share.

Along with being proud of the USA, as mentioned in many of my previous posts I make a concerted effort to buy Made In America products.  I trust products that are Made In America as they are of the highest quality and standards.  By purchasing them I am also helping to create and keep jobs here in the US.
