"Here is a birthday cake, it is practical and at the same time it can be made fancy with Decorator Frosting (found on our site). One or more layers can be tinted by adding food coloring."

GREAT! After reading all the bad reviews, I was really wary of the recipe but ended up trying it anyway. This is a wonderful cake and I would highly recommend it to anyone!
This is the worst cake I ever tasted. It tasted like cornbread. It was too salty and heavy. This is not a good recipe at all.
This is the single worst recipe I've ever gotten from this website - the recipes are usually great. The cake tasted like badly cooked pancakes.
Much too heavy and tasteless
I made this for my mom for her birthday and now I feel bad because I worked hard on it. I wanted to make my mom a good cake and this was the opposite.
wonderful recipe, my family loved it and i didn't have to fuss over it so much.
This cake was a heavier cake like pound cake, but I found it to be the best vanilla cake recipe I have ever made. You must use cake flour, and you must sift it. For those who would like it lighter I would suggest maybe using 3 whole eggs instead of 7 egg yolks. My only addition to this recipe was a 1/4 tsp of lemon extract. I used a light whipped cream frosting. It would probably make an excellent Jello cake or used for strawberry shortcake.
has the texture of cornbread. did not like at all.
