I'm a self proclaimed horrible baker. I somehow find a way to ruin everything I bake. It's a gift, I guess. So, when I decided to bake my first cake ever using this recipe, to be served at my daughter's 2nd birthday party, I expected a horrible disaster. What I got was the absolute best cake I've ever eaten and everyone at the party RAVED about the cake. Even my mother in law kept complimenting me on a job well done (you may have felt hell freezing over yesterday afternoon because of this, lol). The taste was amazing and the texture was perfect. This is it- my go to yellow cake recipe. The only change I made was to bake at 325 degrees but after 25 minutes when it still was looking very uncooked, I put the heat up to 350 and let it finish cooking. I put a thin layer of fresh, sliced strawberries between the cake layers with a thin layer of homemade buttercream icing that I found on this site, iced the whole cake, then put whole, fresh strawberries around the top of the cake. My favorite recipe from this site so far!
