Vanilla Cake with Buttercream Frosting

I was looking for the accurate recipe of chocolate or any frosting cake as it’s my first try on full iced cake and I don’t wanted to spoil it at all. Coincidentally, I found the recipe just two days before my niece birthday and the first thing I did is to take the glance of ingredients list and I was like whoohoo except Amul butter, I’ve everything at hand.
I baked two layer cake for her and single layer cake for us and you can only get a chance to see single layer piece. I hope you did understand that I have reserve the double layer cake for birthday girl.

Ok, now we are done with Shopping, baking, assembling the cake and frosting. But you don’t know it was my bad luck my maid didn’t came that day and I had to clean all the terrible mess, moreover everything seems so buttery and creamy and you can’t say no to the situation.

Oh yeah I said Oh no!

I’m very stubborn soul  ;)  next time I’ll bake chocolate cake only need a best chocolate that could make my effort worthwhile.
This is the simplest vanilla cake with confectionery sugar icing.
I found the recipe here,prepared almost same quantity, and divided the mixtures in to oval shape pan and flower shape cake pan.
