The Best White Cake Recipe Ever – or so it was labeled

My husbands birthday was on sunday so I decided to be a good wife and make him not one but two desserts. The first one that I made him was The Best White Cake Recipe Ever (This was seriously the title of the recipe) with Milk Chocolate Buttercream Frosting.

  • Pour batter evenly between the two pans.
  • Bake for around 30 minutes or till toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

The cake was delicious, but I found it spongey and thick. It almost had a heavy angel food cake taste to it.

I found this E-Z Deco Icing Pen at Home Goods for $2.99. Great investment!
