Classic Vanilla Cake with Buttercream Icing

This cake will absolutely blow your mind.  Just last night I discovered Sweetapolita, and it quickly because my favorite baking blog.  After reading every page of her blog this afternoon, I decided to try a recipe out for myself.  I whipped up her Classic Vanilla Birthday Cake and used her Pastel Swirl Cake Tutorial to make this delicious stack of amazingness.

I used 6 inch pans since a friend was borrowing my 8 inch and I ended up with the tallest little cake I've ever seen!  It probably would have been easier to smooth the edges if the cake has been shorter, so I will certainly try this technique again in the future!
