ISO: fabulous vanilla/white layer cake recipe

laylag | Apr 25, 2009 04:23 PM

requested by my daughter for her birthday - with chocolate frosting. I've found vanilla layer cake recipes for yellow cake but she doesn't want yellow. I need white, very vanilla, moist, rich, not "angel/sponge" fluffy layer cake recipes. I considered buttermilk vanilla layer cakes - would this be a good way to go?

Also, none of those buttermilk recipes combine the cake with a chocolate frosting/icing and I'm wondering if that would just be a bad combination.

Recipes and thoughts on icing problem much appreciated.
