I would have never guessed my favorite cake to make so far would be vanilla bean. This cake is out of this world delicious. It uses a real vanilla bean- which is about $10 a bean, but totally worth it. This is another Sweetapolita recipe. The icing tastes like vanilla ice cream. Seriously.
Part of the joy of cake baking for me has been sharing it. I got to enjoy this cake with five of my dearest friends (including my husband).
