Directions Step-By-Step

Preheat over to 350°F (180°C). Grease and flour three 9-inch (23-cm) round cake pans.
In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugar until fluffy. Add flour, baking soda,
baking powder, and salt. Pour in buttermilk and begin mixing slowly. Continue to mix until well
blended. Add flavorings and stir. In another bowl, beat egg whites until stiff. Fold the egg whites
into the cake batter. Divide the batter evenly among the prepared pans.
Bake for 20 minutes at 350°F (180°C), then lower heat to 300°F (150°C) and bake for about
25 minutes longer, until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Remove cakes from
oven and cool on racks. After 10 minutes, remove from pans and continue cooling on racks.

* 3 cups (750 mL) confectioners' sugar
* 2 teaspoons (10 mL) vanilla extract

Combine ingredients in a mixing bowl and beat until smooth. Spread frosting between cooled layers
and on top and sides of cake. You don't need a wedding to enjoy this cake!

There is a soft wheat flour called cake flour. As I recall it was/Is? produced by the company Swan's Down and can be simulated using all purpose flour by using 1/4 cup corn starch to each 3/4 cup of flour.

When you say cake flour, what do you mean? I don't think I have ever heard of "cake flour". It may sound like a dumb question, but, I am semi new at baking homemade cakes and want to be sure I get it right. :-) Thanks..
