It's that time of year! And to get into the spirit, I made a Vanilla Peppermint Cake to start the celebration a little early. This easy vanilla cake is paired with a delicious peppermint buttercream and a crunchy coating of candy canes!

Hi :) This cake looks so very very yummy. I’d like to make it for a party I’m going to this weekend. Do you really beat the buttercream for 30 minutes? Just making sure I don’t mess it up. ;)
Hi Melissa! Yes - 30 minutes is correct. I know it sounds like a long time, but this time allows the egg whites to cool down before you add the butter. I think people are going to love this cake!
When you say cake flour, is that self-rising flour or all-purpose?
It is actually different from both self-rising and all-purpose flour. If you don't have access to cake flour, you can make your own version by using this:
1 cup all purpose flour (minus 2 tablespoons) + 2 tablespoons corn starch
