Vanilla Cake Recipe

*
*1 1/2 cups Cake Flour

*1 1/2 cups All-purpose Flour

*1 3/4 cups Sugar (or I like 1/4 cup less)

*2 1\2 teaspoons Baking Powder

*1 teaspoon Sea Salt

*1 cup Butter, room temperature

*1 1/2 cups Plain Greek Yogurt

*3 teaspoons Vanilla Extract

*Pastel Wilton Gel Food Coloring Pink, Blue and Yellow

*
Sift together in a bowl the cake flour, all-purpose flour, baking powder and then whisk in the sugar and sea salt. Set aside.

*
In a stand mixer with paddle attachment on medium speed, cream together the butter, Greek yogurt, and vanilla, mix until smooth.

*
Pour the batter into 3 separate mixing bowls and divided the batter evenly between the bowls. Add each individual food color to each bowl, start with 2 drops, mix together and then add more until desired color is achieved.

*
Pour equal amounts, of each color into the 2 cake pans and then with a spoon or frosting knife swirl the colors together by drawing the spoon or knife through the batters.

*
Note: If you desire to make 12 mini cupcakes, spoon batter into each cupcake liner (in muffin tin) with a teaspoon of each colored batters, before adding your batter to the 2 round cake pans.

*
Bake in a 350*F. pre-heated oven for 30-35 minutes.

*
Note: Bake cakes in lined round cake pans, sprayed with cooking spray and a flour coating and make sure that they are filled with the 3 individual batter colors.) bake for 30-35 minutes. Also you can Test the cake with a tooth pick, if desired to the middle of the cake. The tooth pick should come out clean when fully baked.

Vanilla Fluff Frosting

*
*1 cup Butter, room temperature

*1 (7 ounce Container Marshmallow Fluff, I used Western Family Brand

*4 cups Powdered Sugar, more only if needed

*2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract

*3 tablespoons Heavy Whipping Cream

*
Cream together in a stand mixer with paddle attachment on medium-low speed the butter and marshmallow fluff until combined. Then slowly add the powdered sugar, vanilla and heavy whipping cream.  Then turn mixer to medium speed for about 5 minutes and frost cake. Frost a crumb layer (thin layer) of frosting and then refrigerate for about 10 minutes and then frost thick layer and decorate.

*
Break apart Kit Kat Bunnies or regular Kit Kats and add around the frosted cake making a bunny fence. Then add to the top of the cake crumbled chocolate cookies and the Cadbury Eggs. (I bought the butterfly banner from Walmart at Easter time, it was original made for Easter Basket decorating.  I used two wooden skewers to attach the banner, then I placed pointed end of the skewers into the cake, spacing banner as desired.)
