I was tasked with making a birthday cake for a sugar/starch-free 3-year-old. I kindof combined a bunch of different recipes to make one that I thought would taste good and also didn't have any artificial sweeteners. It turns out a little flat, but I just turned it into a 4-layer cake with lemon cream cheese frosting. —Phoebe120

Wondering what the powdered egg whites do for this recipe. Clearly none of us have this in our pantry and will never try this recipe.
