Recipe Notes
* to make the vanilla cake less sweet, you can add 1/2 cup of sugar. i have made the cake with half a cup of sugar, since i was going to use a very sweet strawberry jam glaze, it worked perfectly. however, if just having the vanilla cake plain, then go with 3/4 cup of sugar or add as per your taste preferences.
2. method for strawberry jam glaze - just heat about 2 to 3 tbsp jam with 1/2 tbsp water and 1 or 2 tsp corn starch till the mixture thickens. then spread this icing on the cake and layer with a flat spatula.
