I am planning on testing out sylvia Weinstock's classic yellow cake but noticed it calls for sweet butter. Can anyone please fill be in on what is sweet butter? unsalted?

As a former cheese maker I can tell you a little about butter. Here in the United States, that is pretty much all we have access to. It is churned from sweet cream, and can be either salted or unsalted. Another form, which I find actually more flavorful, is churned from cream that has been allowed to set for awhile. The natural bacteria found in the milk begin to ferment creating a more complex flavor. I enjoy it and am sorry I no longer have a milk cow. There are so many products available to a home dairy VS the store. (Think Walmart cakes VS custom made.)
