AI'm planning on making my own Baby shower cake. I know, I know its supposed to be a surprise but my fiance is hosting and I noticed he's overwhelmed so I said I would take care of the dessert table since I'm the one who's always cooking and baking at family events. I'm pretty new to baking but I'm getting the hang of it.

I'm looking to make a stackable 3 tier cake. I wanted to do a white vanilla cake. I'm looking to make it from scratch. I will also be using fondant to decorate it. My theme is little man and mustaches. Anyone have a great tasting "from scratch" White Cake recipe that can be used to stack and decorate with fondant? I'd really appreciate it! I wanted to try something different. Thanks in advance!

Here is a great white cake recipe. It's a doctored cake mix, but it's reliable, good for carving and stacking, and it's pretty fool-proof.
