Im looking for a good, moist champagne cake recipe using AP flour, NOT cake flour.  I have been serching online but im feeling overwhelmed.  I only have one bottle of champagne, I dont want to waste it on usless recipes.  I want to make a wedding cake for a relative using a champagne cake with an orange filling (Mimosa flavor). Any help or suggestions on cake recipes please would be appreciated.

I really want to make a delicious cake for them.

Thank You, Did you use the buttercream recipe?  Im afraid of how safe it is with using egg yolks.

I didn't use the buttercream but the hot syrup should warm the yolks sufficiently to make it safe. I think I used a standard powdered sugar buttercream icing using champagne as the liquid.
