I made this just now. I will be frosting it a little bit later.
Here are my questions, though.
Why would you need the white vinegar? Would it be for the food coloring
to adhere better, to the cake?
What difference does it make, if you have the buttermilk or not?
I did not add either the white vinegar or the buttermilk because I did
not have them.
The batter tastes great, however.
I made this in a bunt pan.

The cream cheese frosting is in the refrigerator, and I have never
really tried frosting a cake, so we'll see how this goes.
