I gotta tell you, I expected a little more from it based on the cake flavor of Yellow Cake and Vanilla Cupcake, Vanilla Cupcake was always such a great White Cake representation (for me anyway). It has this very light spice note to it, very faint, almost unnoticeable, almost like a bland cardamom, or white pepper (this may just be my senses, my husband does not smell or taste it like I can). It is weaker than I had hoped, but still very tasty. There are so many ways to increase the cake flavor, using a secondary flavor helps it out alot. In a show down between the two, I still think FW Vanilla Cupcake takes the cake…as the best white cake.
