Meet the White Cake Winner

Meet the 2012 White Cake Recipe Contest winner Sue Winter and learn more about her classic white cake recipe.


[MUSIC] My name is Sue Winter, and I'm the Southern Living Big White Cake Contest winner for 2012. We have this, this cake, it was called Mrs. Billett's White Cake, and my mother used to make it for me. It's becomes sort of a, a family birthday cake, and my son requested it, then his children started requesting it, his wife started requesting it. So, I make it for birthdays and we always kind of laugh about who Mrs. Billett might have been, and where my mother might have gotten this, this recipe, and so anyway I thought, well I can enter Mrs. Billett's White Cake in this contest. It's just a good, basic white cake, people have told me. It's like a, a wedding cake or a birthday cake, which we have, and it's, it's, it's light. It's not, it's not heavy. It's got, the, the egg whites are folded in, and so I think helps make it a little bit lighter. It's very basic. You can dress it up or dress it down. Either way, it's good. My husband and I like to travel, and we are kind of foodies. We really like food and, and good wine, so I'm thinking it won't be real hard to find somewhat, something to do with the prize money.
