I am looking for the basic white/yellow cake recipes. After 15yrs, I am looking to get back into baking for friends and family. I am looking for the melt in your mouth taste to practice for friends and family before I take on the "new" techniques for the icing and decoating. I am rebuilding everything from the pans to the basic supplies. So for now I am using the 9in pans and the 9 x 13 in pans.

Hi Jan! Thanks for the welcome! That's a great link! I'm checking them out and using what I can for testing cakes....I have a couple of Wilton colors for icings but not the Christmas Green color....I have Christmas red, what colors will I need to get that color? I have leaf green and yellow, I will need to find another one as well...I'm making Christmas Trees for Christmas for a bunch of kids I have the pans for just need the right color combo....any ideas?

Our Michael's store has moved and I haven't had the chance to go and see what they have just yet....I have a couple of days before having to put the icing on...(crossing my fingers).
