Ribbon Cake

This is a soft butter cake that is very popular among the kids and the adults as well. The name ‘Ribbon Cake’ is given because every slice that you cut of the cake will have a colored pattern of two colors that looks like ribbons. This is one of my Signature Cake Recipe. Hope you all love it.
