im looking to start making cakes from scratch and so far, i have not liked any that i have done. does anyone have a great recipe that they can share with me? I would love to say that the cake i made was made from scratch and not a box mix. I already have the buttercream mastered but now i need a good cake recipe. Thank you to anyone who can help me in advanced.

And if you would like to try a great "doctored" cake mix recipe, I'd recommend the many flavor variations of the WASC cake.
Here's the expanded flavors recipe:
To me, this is the perfect combination of box reliability with a more homemade taste.
