Didn’t life begin when you were served your first slice of vanilla cake with chocolate buttercream? You don’t want to forget the obligatory glass of cold milk to complete the whole regression-to-childhood experience here.


For the Vanilla Cake


Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). Set an oven rack in the middle position. Butter two 8-inch (20-cm) round cake pans and line the bottoms with parchment paper cut to fit. Press the paper into the butter, then flip the paper over to evenly coat both sides with butter.
