I have heard before that white cake tends to be very dry.  I guess omitting the egg yolks makes a difference not only in the color, but the texture of the cake.

White cake does not have the yolk. Depending on the recipes, it may also use oil or shortening instead of butter. It makes a huge difference in texture and moistness (especially if you are using cake flour, which is very fine)

If you have your heart set on a white cake, you need to buy good butter that isn’t colored yellow (like the French kind) and use buttermilk. 


If your friend only uses yellow cake, that will bake more similar.  More like a white pound cake.

Unless the cake is made improperly so that it is dry, it will not crumble. Also, white cake doesn’t crumble worse than any other flavor.
