Well if you want to make it get the recipe from any website. But the point is make sure you use buttermilk to make it moist. If you add some creme into it, it will taste good.

I am not being sarcastic, please read untill the end: Buy Pillsbury French Vanilla cake, you have to follow the directions on the back of the box EXCEPT always undercook the cake by about 5 minutes less than the box suggest and it will turn out moist and perfect!

Make sure all of the ingredients that you have are fresh and not past their expiration date. Weigh the flour instead of measuring it, to make sure it's precise. Find out if your oven's temperature is correct, you can buy a special thermometer for this. Try out the recipe before his birthday to make sure the cake will taste good.

If you're planning to make the cake from scratch, consider getting some pastry flour. Most people tend to use all purpose flour for cakes, but pastry flour lends itself to producing a lighter texture.

Try interviewing your local catering service and ask what their recommendations would be for the perfect vanilla cake. There's plenty of good recipes on the internet about vanilla cakes or additives to cake batter to give it a stronger vanilla flavor. Better ask your local caterer, though.
