However, I did some research and found a recipe for a "Celebration Cake" from Pampered Chef that may be similar to the one you had at your cluster meeting. Here it is:Celebration CakeIngredients:- 1 package (18.25 ounces) white cake mix- 1 cup water- 1/3 cup vegetable oil- 3 egg whites- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract- 1/4 teaspoon almond extract- 2 cans (16 ounces each) vanilla frosting- Assorted food coloring- Assorted sprinkles and decorationsInstructions:1.

Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed for 2 minutes.3. Divide batter evenly between the prepared cake pans. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.4. Cool cakes in pans for 10 minutes. Remove from pans and cool completely on wire racks.5. Once the cakes are completely cooled, place one cake layer on a serving plate. Spread a thin layer of vanilla frosting on top of the cake.6. Place the second cake layer on top of the frosted layer. Frost the entire cake with the remaining vanilla frosting.7.
