A long time ago, I was in New York and happened upon "The Cupcake Cafe". This was long before Cupcakes shops sprang up all over the place. It was a novelty. I had the most incredible Vanilla Cupcake with Vanilla Buttercream icing. It was heavenly.
After that, I set about finding the perfect Vanilla Cake Recipe.

I even bought the Cupcake Cafe Cookbook. But their recipe was way to large, and I had trouble scaling it down and getting the % and # exact.
Then one day in the Globe and Mail, I found it. The Cupcake Cafe Vanilla Cake recipe, scaled down for home use (not bakery) It was perfect. The best Vanilla Cake Ever. With the best Buttercream. Not icing...but real ....buttercream..
