Cakes to die for!

I went to my local library to find a new cake recipe book and I came across Cakes to die for! by Bev Shaffer. I flipped through it and I found a couple of recipes I wanted to try, Marble Cake and Hazelnut Cream Cupcakes, so I checked it out. When I went to the back of the book I found a recipe for white cake that had all of the ingredients that a yellow cake usually has so I decided to try it out.

The recipe was not only delicious but simple to make. It tasted just like yellow cake to me so I decided to use the recipe to make my daughters birthday cake/cupcakes. I hope you get a chance to try it.
