Cake Recipe Yolanda Gampp – I’ve had many requests for a moist, delicious vanilla sculpted cake recipe that uses AP flour instead of cake flour. Now you know I’m #teamcakefloor all the way but I understand not everyone has access to cake flour or just wants a cake that’s a little better for carving. This cake does the job and is my go-to cake to switch up the flavors to make it custom or to use in sculpted cakes.
This is also the recipe to try if you’re looking to dip your toe in the baking pond. It is practically fool-proof, delicious and a great cake to serve for a birthday party.

For a while I have been developing a series of cake recipes that work well for sculpting because although in the past I only used my regular cake flour recipes because I love the taste the best, it can be challenging to teach that to other people. Especially if you are not used to dealing with a delicate cake flour cake.
Since my job is to teach people, I thought coming up with a vanilla sculpted cake recipe that still tastes amazing but works really well for carving and sculpting would be my go to.
This cake is based on Yolanda Gampp’s vanilla cake recipe. I used her recipe for years when I needed something strong but have since made some adjustments to make the recipe more to my own tastes. A little less sugar and some added fat to keep the cake moist since I don’t like to use simple syrup on my cakes.
I also have a red velvet sculpted cake recipe, a chocolate sculpted cake recipe and a bright red sculpted cake recipe that can be adjusted to any color really.

You may be wondering if this recipe is good for stacked cakes. Yes it is! Some places you can’t find cake flour very easily or maybe you just prefer the durability and flavor of AP flour over cake flour. Whatever the reason, it’s nice to have options.
This vanilla sculpted cake recipe doubles as a great vanilla stacked cake recipe. If you want to make it into funfetti, you can stir in a couple of tablespoons of rainbow sprinkles right at the end before you put the batter in the cake pan. Then sprinkle a little more on top because they tend to sink like the cake bakes. This way you will have sprinkles all through the dough.
When I stack my vanilla cakes, I like to trim off the outside layer of crust so that I get some nice clean slices. Especially in vanilla cake I feel like the brown on the outside takes away from the beautiful white texture on the inside of the cake.
Sometimes you need a nice sturdy cake and the taste is not important. These types of cake are usually used for display cakes that will be left for a long time or for competition cakes. Yes there are things called cake shows where cake decorators come from all over the world and compete against each other. Most of the time you have to use real cake.
Yolanda Gampp’s Nacho Cake
For the cakes I like to use box mix. I know that sounds counter-intuitive because I always say to stay away from box mix if you want a nice stable cake. The reason box cake is so big is because it has preservatives in it. The preservatives protect the cake from getting mold or going bad. I know it sounds terrifying but I actually had a display cake made with box cake sitting on top of my fridge for over a year and it never got moldy. It’s like the McDonald’s French fries you find under your chair. They just dry out and are perfectly preserved. Freaky.
To make my boxed vanilla cake sturdier, I add in two cups of flour, 4 extra eggs and leave the oil. I also tend to over mix the dough so it’s really tough. It may not look the best, but it is great to keep the form for a competition. This sturdy cake is also better for when the cake has to travel a long way by car or even plane and not refrigerated for long periods.
Select an option below to calculate how much batter or frosting you need. Adjust the servings slider on the recipe card to change the amounts the recipe makes.
Note: Measurements are estimated based on the vanilla cake recipe using standard US. it. Cake pans and sizes. Measurements used are for 2″ high cake pans only. Your results may vary. Do not overfill cake pans above manufacturer’s recommended guidelines.

Friday Fun: This Cake Artist Creates Edible Replicas Of Other Foods
School is back in session and one of my favorite things about going back to school is seeing what treats are in my lunch box each day! But since I’m not going back to school, I decided to get in the spirit and turn all my favorite school snacks into mini cakes!
To make my back to school mini cakes, I started by making 4 lbs of my Ultimate Vanilla Cake, 4 lbs of my Ultimate Chocolate Cake, and 4 lbs of my Spiced Vanilla Cake. Each of the five mini cakes is completely inspired and flavored by its respective lunch box treat. Starting with honey buns, this mini cake features layers of honey buns inside and is coated in a splatter of honey and cinnamon. Second, the Whippets cake features a coat of chocolate glaze and cut Whippets inside and digestive cookie chunks and strawberries all around. The Ah Caramel inspired cake features layers of the treat as well as mini marshmallows and is coated in a sweet caramel drizzle. The Passion Flaky Cake is decorated with the snack and fresh berries to emulate the triple berry jam inside. Finally, the Cosmic Brownies Cake is full of brownies and rainbow bits for an extra chocolate bite.
