How to Make Old Fashioned Buttermilk Wedding Cake


  1. 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.
  2. Cream Cheese Frosting

    * 8 ounces (225 g) cream cheese, softened
    * 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!
