Scrumptious White Cake

This is the best white cake recipe that I have ever tried. It's a favorite in our family.    Enjoy!!!!!

The recipe is as follows: 

350 degrees  for 30 minutes
2-9 in. cake pans (greased and floured)
Cut out and place wax paper circles to fit 
the botttom only of each pan)
3/4  C. unsalted butter (room temp.)             
1 1/2 C. sugar (I use the ultra fine baking sugar)
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
2 1/4 C. cake flour
1 TBLS baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 C. milk (I use part half and half)
5 stiffly beaten egg whites (room temp.)

Beat butter and sugar for 10 minutes.  Scraping
bowl occasionally, until light and fluffy. I usually get the
pans readyand sift the dry ingredients while I'm waiting.
Add dry ingredientsto the butter/sugar mixture alternately
with the milk.  Mix well.

Beat egg whites in a separate bowl until stiff,  fold them into
the cake mixture, pour into pans and bake for 30 minutes. 
Let the cakes cool before removing from the pans.
Remember to remove the wax paper.


1 1/2  cubes of butter
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. of almond (optional, but I think it adds a little
extra yumminess)
1/2 tsp. salt
4-5  C. confectioners sugar
milk (I use half and half) to consistency (approx. 1/4 cup)
food coloring, if desired (I used a peachy pink on this cake)
Wilton  Sparkling Rainbow Sugars for sprinkles
