I am an amateur when it comes to baking cakes.
I used to only bake from the box, but i recently went to my friends birthday party and her cake was professionally made.
The cake was a yellow cake, but the texture was the best i ever had!
It was fluffy, light, soft and moist.
When you pinch it with your fingers, it crumbles because it was so soft and light.
Please, please, please, if anyone has a good recipe similar to what i described, please give it to me.
I want to start baking cakes that are more professional, and would love your help!

Go to www.wrenscottage.com and click down at the bottom "From Karen's Kitchen" The scratch "Yellow Cake" recipe is really good. It uses the reverse creaming method. (Adding the butter to the dry ingredients first) This makes a light and fluffy cake.
