2. In a large bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt until well combined.
3. Add the softened unsalted butter to the dry ingredients. Mix until the mixture resembles fine crumbs.

6. Divide the cake batter equally among the prepared cake pans.
7. Bake the cakes for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
8. Allow the cakes to cool in the pans for 10 minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.
Instructions for the Vanilla Icing:
1. In a large bowl, beat the softened unsalted butter until creamy and smooth.
2. Gradually add the powdered sugar to the bowl with the butter, mixing until well combined.
3. Pour in the whole milk and pure vanilla extract. Beat the mixture until fluffy and smooth, forming a luscious vanilla icing.
1. Place one cooled cake layer on a serving plate.
2. Spread a generous amount of the vanilla icing on top of the first layer.
3. Place the second cake layer on top of the icing and repeat, adding another layer of icing.
4. Finally, frost the entire cake with the remaining vanilla icing, creating a smooth and elegant finish.
