This is for those of us who enjoy a white cake but, without all of the added sugar.
To be honest with you, I am one to not turn down a slice of cake either.

I think of this cake as a happy medium that everyone can agree upon.
Nobody does not like white cake, although it may not always be their first choice.

You may be wondering, what is it that makes a white cake different than other cakes.

Specifically, what makes a white cake not a yellow cake. Yes, there really is a difference between a white cake and a yellow cake.

A yellow cake is a really basic cake that can be topped with about anything.
This is the kind of cake that a mom may make for a birthday party or you have baked as cupcakes. It is a basic and easy cake to make. I should also add that this is a yellow cake meaning that it is yellow in color.

However, a white cake is really something special.

This is the frosting-friendly cake that we may choose to use for special occasions. Think wedding cakes or really special occasion cakes.

There is special cake that goes into make a white cake.
Special cake is important as we need to make sure that we keep this cake white and not..er…yellow.
We do this by adding white ingredients. Specifically, we add egg whites and not yolks.

There really is something special about have an all white cake.

A white cake kind of sparkles in comparison to other cakes. This could be one reason why white cakes are so popular with weddings.

A white cake can also make everything else stand out as well.
Sure, a white cake by itself looks very magical, kind of like fresh snow. However, add only a few sprinkles to that cake, and they really stand out, unlike with a yellow or chocolate cake.

You can also make your white cake with shortening.

While shortening is not the most popular fat these days, it can really keep a cake nice and white.
Combining shortening with butter is a good balance of fat that can give our cake moisture.
