Vanilla Sheet Cake With Vanilla Buttercream Frosting

"I was searching for a Vanilla Cake recipe for a friend's birthday and could not find what I wanted, so I combined a few recipes and came up with a very moist, flavorful cake. This recipe includes the cake mix extender I used.My DH who does not like a "white cake" loved it and our friend said it might be my best yet. I used bake even strips to ensure a flat top on the cake and baked at a lower temperature. Hope you enjoy it as much as they did."
