• 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar

• 4 large eggs room temperature

• 1 and 1/2 cups unsalted butter

• 5 and 1/2 cups confectioners’ sugar

• 1/3 cup whole milk

• 1 and 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

• 1/2 teaspoon salt


• Preheat oven to 350°F

• Grease three 9-inch cake pans with parchment paper. The parchment paper helps the cake release seamlessly from the pan.

• In a separate bowl, whisk together the baking powder, flour and salt. Set the flour mixture aside.

• Using a mixer, beat butter and sugar together on high speed until smooth and creamy, about 3 minutes.

• Whisk 4 eggs, and vanilla extract on high speed until just combined for about 2 minutes. Add 4 tsp vanilla extract and whisk to combine.

Make the frosting:

In a large bowl, using a hand-held mixer or stand mixer with the whisk or paddle attachment, beat butter on medium speed until creamy, about 2 minutes. Add confectioners' sugar, milk, vanilla extract and salt with mixer on slow speed. Beat for 2 minutes at high speed.
