Grease and floured bottoms of two 9-inch layer cake pans. Sift together the 2 1/2 cups flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and soda.

The recipe instructions do not include adding the eggs and vanilla to the cake batter mixture. And it might be a good idea to instruct the baker to use a mixer on the dough. I'll let you know what my party thinks about the finished product. My star choice is not based on finished cake.
