I love this with a white or french vanilla mix, but not with chocolate. While it tasted good, the texture was off for me.

I was really unsure about this recipe when the woman who made my wedding cake showed it to me but I remember how good my cake was and decited to take it for a test run and omg I couldnt be happier, this is seriously the only recipe I will use when it comes to white cake, I am trying it today with a chocolate cake just as a test run for a German Chocolate Cake I will be making next month to see if its suitable to use, Will post an update

K update as promised, I made the recipe using chocolate cake and I hate to say it but it was awful, no flavor and just totally off, I still love the vanilla and keep boxes of cake mix in my pantry just to make this cake last min.

I absolutely LOVE this cake recipe. It is my go-to recipe and has NEVER failed me. I've made it with white, coconut, pineapple, and butter box mixes and all have turned out delicious. Thank you!!
