Q: My favorite childhood birthday cake was the Champagne Cake from a Virginia Bakery in Berkeley, CA. I'm now living in Boise, ID and there are no bakeries that make this cake here. My birthday is coming up and I would like to create this for myself. Can you help find a recipe?

Editor: I just saw this recipe in the new cookbook Vintage Cakes and was immediately smitten! I recommend picking up a copy and starting there with your research:
• Vintage Cakes by Julie Richardson
Readers, do you know a good recipe for Champagne Cake?
