I am looking for a recipe for Champagne Cake. I remember getting it at a bakery in Bakersfield, CA many years ago. We would get it for special celebrations.

Hi Vickie: I'm from Fresno, CA, and we always had a Champagne cake for special occasions! Now that I'm in the midwest, though, I haven't been able to find in any any bakery around, nor do they know what I'm talking about! I visited Fresno in 2009 and my friend ordered the cake for my birthday - what an incredible treat! Don't know if "shadysadie"'s recipe is the real deal, but it won't hurt to try. Wouldn't it be something if we could make our beloved Champagne Cake whenever we wanted it? Good luck!
