I really like this sour cream cake recipe and use it regularly. The original recipe came from Sweet Celebrations, but I modified it a bit.
What's great about this moist cake recipe is it's dense enough for carving and there is very little, if any crown, to trim. This recipe will make 2 9" cakes each 2" high, so you don't need to torte them to create a 4" tier.
Because it's a sour cream cake, there is much more moisture. It is not a light, airy cake.
This step is optional: I wrap the cakes up and put them in the freezer. This locks in the moisture and also reduces the number of crumbs on the outside of the cake, making it easier to frost.
This yellow cake recipe goes well with any flavor fillings and icings.
