Awesome...thank you!!! 
So the last time I made a vanilla cake with a fruit filling the cake turned to a bread pudding like consistency.  No bueno.  Not that is was the filling's fault...I actually found the refrigerator door open a tad and I seriously think the humidity got to my cake (I'm in FL and it was 95 degrees in June).  The next time I made a vanilla cake I used a dulce de leche filling and the door to my refrigerator remained shut and the cake was perfectly fine :)   However, now...

I'm new here...this is my first post.  I'm an amateur cake maker...I mostly just do it for fun and because the local bakeries wanted an arm and a leg to make the cakes I had wanted for my daughters...I now understand why...it's a lot of work !!  But I do enjoy doing it :)   Anyway, I received a Kitchen Aid for Christmas and also the ice cream maker attachment for the mixer.  So now my creative side is screaming ICE CREAM CAKE at me and I can't turn it off  ...
