I'm making a Vanilla cake for a 1 year olds birthday for this Sunday. I've made this same recipe in the past and it comes out very dense. Not dry but hard to swallow. Is this typically the consistency of a Vanilla cake or am I missing something. I follow all my recipes to a "t". Is there something I can add or take out to change it to a fluffier cake?? Note that I will be adding fondant/gumpast decor to one side of it, "Happy Feet" the movie. So I still need to know that it will hold up. Any suggestions please. I'm going to bake on Saturday Morning!! TIA!

Try looking up the WASC recipe here on CC. It's a doctored cake mix, which is dense enough to cover in fondant, and stack, (and carve) but it isn't like a rock. It's my go-to vanilla cake

Maybe too much flour? What's the recipe? Is it dry to swallow? Maybe you need some butter or oil?

We need to see the recipe like the previous poster said. And how do you prepare it?
