Does anyone have a great, moist white and/or yellow cake mix made from scratch? One that is good for tiered cakes, etc. And for larger cakes do you double/triple the recipe or make each batch separately and then mix together? I've heard the ones made with buttermilk are very good. I welcome any suggestions!
i love the victoria sponge, really easy to make more/ less, and to flavour in lots of ways, holds up to carving pretty well too.
I love Magnolia's vanilla buttermilk cake, I use it for all my vanilla cakes, including cupcakes. I substitute butter for margarine though because I find it makes a more moist cake than butter does. For large cakes (10in+), I also add 1 tbsp oil to the batter at the end to ensure the cake doesn't dry out whilst baking. HTH!

What a great idea!
Ooops, I wrote that wrong and now I can't change it! I sub margarine for butter, not the other way around! Sorry!
