Here is a pic of max’s birthday cake!  The icing is just buttercream and some fondant 🙂  The batter is my friend gretchen’s famous cake recipe :

2 (18 oz) boxes white cake mix
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups granulated sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
2 2/3 cups of water, room temperature
1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 teaspoons real vanilla
2 teaspoons almond extract
2 cups sour cream, room temperature
8 large egg whites, room temperature
 
 
Sift all dry ingredients into a large mixing bowl. Stir with a whisk. Add the remaining ingredients and beat on medium speed for 2 minutes. Stopping and scraping sides of bowl as needed. Pour into greased and floured cake pan/pans, filling each pan a little over half full. Lightly tap cake pans on counter to bring air bubbles to top. Bake in preheated 325 F oven until cake tests done, about 30-40 minutes. Just keep checking with a toothpick or knife, the times really have varied for me depending on the pans.
