Smash Vanilla Cake:
I made this recipe from a variety of cake recipes for inspiration and cut down the portion size. This recipe makes exactly enough for two four inch pans.
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter softened (half a stick)
1 large egg white
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/8 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 cup cake flour
pinch of salt
1/3 cup milk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg and blend well. Add vanilla. Mix. In a separate bowl, mix dry ingredients. Pour half into egg mixture.  Mix. Pour in milk. Mix. Add remaining dry ingredients. Mix until combined. Pour evenly into two greased four inch pans. Bake for 15-20 mins until golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean.
Let cool 5 mins in the pan. Remove from pan and let cool completely on a rack. Make your icing, I used my favorite recipe for cream cheese frosting here.

Icing recipe:
1 pound cream cheese at room temperature
3/4 pound (3 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon pure almond extract
1 1/2 pounds confectioners' sugar, sifted
