I made my son's R2D2 cake this week and used the WASC cake recipe that I found on this site. I just want to say thank you! The cake was wonderful and I got so many compliments on the taste. I will definitely use this recipe from now on!

I made this recently using 3 tsp of vanilla extract, and NO almond extract. Everyone LOVED it. Said it was the best cake they have ever had.

Oooh, I will try the different flavorings next time. I am still new at this so I don't really know much about substituting flavors.
Thanks for the ideas!
