Instructions
White Cake
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F. Generously butter the bottom and sides of two 9″ round cake pans. Set aside until the batter is ready to pour in them.
  2. Sift together the 3 cups and 6 tablespoons of cake flour, salt and baking powder. Set aside for later.
  3. In a large bowl beat the butter on medium-high speed until the butter is creamy and smooth. Slowly add in the sugar. Beat on high speed for a couple of minutes once all of the sugar has been added in.
  4. Next, add in the very lightly beaten egg whites. You will want to beat these on low speed and you will also want to add them in a little at a time, beating well after each addition.
  5. Now, get the flour mixture that you set aside earlier. You are going to add this into the batter in three separate additions. You are also going to alternate it with two additions of the milk. You are going to start with the addition of flour and end with the addition of flour. Beat until just combined.
  6. Add the canola oil and beat on low until the oil is combined into the batter.
  7. Pour the batter evenly between the two round cake pans. Smooth the top of the batter.
  8. Bake for 20-24 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle of the cake comes out with just a few crumbs sticking to it. Remove from the oven and let it set for 10 minutes, then place upside down on wire racks until completely cooled.
  9. Once the cake is completely cooled it is ready for the icing.
Cream Cheese Icing
  1. In a large bowl beat the cream cheese, butter and vanilla on medium high speed until creamy and smooth. This will take 2-3 minutes. Change the speed to low and add in the sifted powdered sugar gradually. Once the powdered sugar has been added beat on high speed for 1-2 minutes.
  2. Spread the icing over the cooled cake. All that is left now is to enjoy!
