You will need:

4 cups of Flour
2 sticks of butter
Non-stick cooking spray
1 tablespoon of Baking Powder
2 cups of sugar
Measuring cups and spoons
4 Eggs
Square silver pan
Vanilla Extract
Conventional Oven
Large and medium bowl
Large whisk

1. Gather all materials listed in the materials portion of the manual (see page )
2. Preheat oven to 350 F. It will heat to this temperature while you prepare the cake batter.

3. Prepare the cake pan by spraying the inside of the pan with nonstick spray, making sure the entire
interior of the pan is covered. Flour could be used as a substitute.

4. Begin making the cake batter by whisking 3 cups of flour, 1 tablespoon of baking powder and a
teaspoon of salt in a bowl until combined.

5. In a separate large bowl, beat 2 sticks butter and 1 1/2 cups sugar with a mixer on
medium-high speed. Do this until the mixture looks until light and fluffy (about
three minutes).

6. Reduce the mixer speed to medium; beat in 4 eggs, one at a time, scraping down
the bowl as needed.

7. Beat in the vanilla (The mixture may look separated at this point.)
8. Mix 1/2 cup water with cup of cream in a liquid measuring cup or bowl.
9. Beat the flour mixture into the butter mixture until smooth.

10. Pour the batter in the prepared pan.

11. Place the pan in the preheated oven. Let it sit and bake for approximately 40min.

12. After 40 minutes, check to see if cake is completely cooked by poking it with a
knife or toothpick. It should come out clean without any crumbs or batter.

13. Once cooked completely, remove from the oven. Carefully loosen cake from pan
(use knife or ladle if necessary) onto a plate or platter.

14. Put cake in freezer for 1 hour.

15. After 1 hour, remove the cake from the freezer.
16. Take 2 cups of icing and cover the cake in a thin layer, be sure to remove any
crumbs, (its okay if it looks messy right now).

17. Remove from freezer and cover the cake with another layer of icing, as much as
you see fit.
18. After placing second layer of icing, you may decorate using candy, fruit or
whatever you wish that fits your special occasion.
