In a separate bowl beat the 5 egg whites and fold into cake mixture. Grease and flour 3 (9 inch) cake pans. Pour mixture into the pans evenly. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

When frosting a 3 layer cake, place flat side (bottom) of each layer on top for smoother icing. Ice between each layer, then sides and top.
