I am a beginner! So please understand my excitement today as I baked my first fluffy totally edible buttermilk cake! icon_biggrin.gif Now my problem is when I filled my two 8 in round pans the cake came out a little "flatter" than I wanted. The recipe i used called for two pans. it tasted pretty good but I want the cake to be extra fluffy thick and moist. How do you make the cake do that?
