ISO a fluffy white/yellow cake recipe

I know I could just do a search on Google or Epicurious, but after my last attempt I'm just going to ask here. I tried baking a chocolate cake off the Epicurious site. And although it was good, it looked nothing like the cake in the photo--more fudgey and dense than what I wanted.

This time, I just want a very simple, not too sweet, fluffy white or yellow cake. I'm going to make a simple layer cake with jam and fresh fruit, so I want something very subtle. Does anyone have a trusted recipe, even if it's off a site like Epi? There are so many choices there, it's hard to know which one is exactly what I want.

What I also thought would be great is the type of cake that you get at Chinese bakeries: not quite as dense as poundcake, but similar in buttery-ness and flavor.

Final question: I love the tasted of freshly whipped cream and powdered sugar, but know it won't last long out of the fridge. Will the tartar powder (what's it called?) help stablize it a bit? I need it to hold up a few hours in the fridge. Thanks!
