Snow White Vanilla Birthday Cake

So, this is not my recipe, but rather, one I got off of Pinterest a while back. I decided to make it, and freaked when I noticed that the original link didn't work! I finally found the recipe online, but I couldn't pin it because it lacked an image (sigh). So, here's the whole recipe, in all its glory:

Snow White Vanilla Birthday Cake        
Described as Geburtstag Kucha (Birthday Cake from Rebecca Weber) in
Food That Really Schmecks by Edna Staebler
"Snow white and light as a feather; baked in layers."
1/2 cup butter
2 cups white sugar
3 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 cups ice water
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
4 egg whites beaten stiff
Add sugar to the butter and beat until light.
Sift dry ingredients and add alternately with ice water and flavourings,
beating thoroughly after each addition.
Fold in the beaten egg whites.
Pour into greased layer pans and bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes.
Cover with Angel Feather Icing and be tactful about the number of candles.
