I made my son's R2D2 cake this week and used the WASC cake recipe that I found on this site. I just want to say thank you! The cake was wonderful and I got so many compliments on the taste. I will definitely use this recipe from now on!
Could you tell me which recipe you used? Thanks!!
Yes, inquiring minds want to know.
Also where in IN are you?
Here is the WASC cake recipe that I used in case anyone else wants to try it. You won't regret it!

I made this recently using 3 tsp of vanilla extract, and NO almond extract. Everyone LOVED it. Said it was the best cake they have ever had.
And I used vanilla and butter flavoring instead of the almond...it was delicious.
Oooh, I will try the different flavorings next time. I am still new at this so I don't really know much about substituting flavors.
Thanks for the ideas!
