I am new to the forum, and since they are making changes my answer may be out there already, so I will keep looking. However, I have never made a cake from scratch and would love to give it a try. I'm really new to cake decorating, so whatever recipe it is, it will need to go well with vanilla buttercream icing. I'd really appreciate it if you have a recipe you're willing to share.
