  • In the bowl of your stand mixer, fitted with the paddle attachment; add the cake mix, milk, oil and vanilla extract. Mix on low speed until combined. Then add in the egg whites and mix until incorporated.
  • Divide the cake batter amongst pans, tap each pan on the counter before sliding into your preheated 350° oven for 25 minutes or until a cake tester comes out with only a few crumbs attached.
  • Allow the cakes to cool in the pans for 10 minutes. Run a knife around the edges of each cake before removing the cake and transferring to a cooling rack. Cool completely before frosting.
  • Place one cake onto a cake stand or plate. Top with half of the frosting and spread evenly to the edges of the cake. Place the second layer on top and repeat with the frosting.
  • Top with sprinkles, candles, a banner or whatever your heart desires.
