I am really proud of this vanilla cake. I love its buttery, sweet flavor, and its texture is perfect for simple cakes layered with buttercream and toppings as well as for novelty cakes. It is subtle yet satisfying and tastes homemade and much better than the artificial-vanilla boxed variety. If you’re making one of the novelty cakes, use the pan sizes and baking times specified in the novelty cake recipe.
*Cake Tip: Make sure your eggs and butter are at room temperature before beginning.*
