White 50th Birthday Cake Recipes

There are many options for white 50th birthday cake recipes, some are very simple yet tasty.

Some people don’t like chocolate, others just want a different color cake, perhaps for a theme. These are delicious white 50th cake recipes for you to consider.

I don’t know if anyone else still feels the way I do about baking, but I feel guilty if I make a box cake for someone.  But that could just be me.

On the other hand, sometimes using a mix for the cake but preparing frosting from scratch can be delicious.  Also, mixes can be modified, with ingredients added to add moistness or flavor variations.  Putting your own special touch on something can be just as good as something made from scratch.

In any case, let’s take a look at some cakes!
