I improved this recipe so, it has been edited. I have been looking for a good white cake recipe for a long time, I must have tried 8-10 different ones. Didn't like the texture or flavor, of this one or that one, and then there are the ones that fell or were too crumbly to even frost. So, I threw together one of my own. And it only took three tries to get it right. LOL
