I have been searching for the perfect yellow cake for a long time to make for birthdays, weddings, etc. This might be it. I found the Basic Yellow Cake recipe at Smitten Kitchen. It has a good flavor, and possibly more importantly, it is moist. I never have trouble with other flavors of cake being moist, but yellow just never seems to be quite moist enough. The cake was also incredibly easy to work with. I used two eight inch pans, which meant I had really thick layers, so I torted them. This was definitely the easiest cake to torte I have every made. And, if that wasn’t enough to make you try it, the fact that it iced so easily might do it. I almost think I could have forgone the crumb coat. All that being said, I am not one hundred percent sure this is the one, so I will continue to try more recipes, and keep you updated on the progress.
