I searched for the perfect cake recipe for a long time and this it! My tips....first, use Pillsbury cake mix. I've found that the texture is off with other brands. Second, make sure you line the bottom of your pan with parchment paper. Also, my personal preference is light colored, heavy aluminum pans. Also, if you want to try something a little different...I've made with cake 1 and 1/3 cups of crushed oreo cookies & crushed sprinkles on top of the icing. Just omit the almond extract. It's AMAZING. And my favorite buttercream icing recipe with this cake has 3/4 c butter (1 and a half sticks), 1/4 cup crisco, 1 tablespoon of meringue powder (in the cake section at Walmart or Hobby Lobby), 2 teaspoons vanilla extract, 4 tablespoons of half & half, (optional - 1/4 teaspoon almond extract)...mix together then add 4 cups of powdered sugar. Done right, this cake is the best!
