I was not impressed with this cake it. The cake was just ordinary but nice, I think the same results could be achieved much more simply and cheaply than in this recipe.

I'll give this 5 stars, it tastes good, however I probably won't make it again. I have another white cake recipe that I use and get similar results without jumping through all the hoops. It is...

My boss who is an awesome chef/baker wanted her mom to make her famous LB cake, but she wouldn't so I took a stab at it and this turned out great! Everyone loved it, even boss's mom!

this was hard to make, and sooooo very worth the effort. we threw a 1920's party and this was one of the highlights. make it. now.

it's a real winner! I have been making this cake since 1945. It is in my WWII recipe book. I have won ribbons at the fair with the recipe.

I thank you Carol for sharing this recipe.
