Cake of the Week: Yellow Cake with Chocolate Icing

In these cold, wet and rainy days of winter when it seems like all we hear is bad news, don't we all need a little chocolate?  Even better, a homemade chocolate cake decorated with cheery yellow flowers!  I'm feeling better already. 

Here are the top 5 reasons you should make this cake this week: 1.  It's chocolate. 2. It's a sheet cake, so you don't have to worry about baking cake layers or perfectly frosting the cake. 3. It's from Cooking Light, so it's lower in fat and calories.  (291 calories and 8.1 fat grams per serving) 4.  You can serve it right out of the pan. 5. It's chocolate.

Brighten your week with a cake we might just rename "Comfort Cake".  Enjoy a piece today and feel better about the world.
