Vanilla Cake

Rich yet fluffy, dense and moist, this is the classic white cake of your dreams. Made by hand at a small family-owned Florida cake boutique, the four layers of this cake have the heft of a pound cake, alternated with ultra-rich vanilla buttercream. The whole thing is then covered in vanilla buttercream frosting. Grab a glass of cold milk or a hot cup of coffee and tuck into this decadent treat. 6" diam., 4 3/4" high (serves 8-10). 3 lb. 2 oz. Shipped frozen Made in USA.

Most delicious vanilla cake
May 10, 2014
This cake is the best vanilla cake I have eaten. The frosting is delicious, not too sweet and the cake is so moist it could stand on its own. It arrived in perfect condition. I brought it to work and shared it with coworkers who are raving about it weeks later. I have tried other flavors. We Take the Cake makes the best cakes.
Pros: Texture, Quality, Good for Entertaining, Decadent, Flavor

I would not recommend this cake. The icing is more like a royal icing rather than a buttercream. It is extremely sweet and thick. Something like eating just plain sugar. The cake itself dense and dry. I have previously purchased several cakes made by another bakery from Williams-Sonoma and found them to be very good. This unfortunately is not one of them. Sorry I brought it.
Cons: Disappointing, Texture, Flavor
