A classic birthday cake, with a soft, tender yellow crumb and a luscious chocolaty frosting comes together in about 30 minutes after you've baked the layers and prepared the frosting. All you need are the candles.
Dollop about 1 tbsp. frosting onto the center of a cake stand (to hold cake in place). Place one cake layer on stand. Spread with about 3/4 cup frosting. Top with second layer. Starting with the top, then working down the sides, frost cake with remaining frosting.
Very delicious. I agree, the cake itself was a little dry, but otherwise tasty. The frosting was, however, out of this world! It was more like fudge than frosting, and simply divine. I will definitely make this again.
I found this cake to be very dry. Had to add more milk because batter was too thick to spread in pan. Also the favor was a little off. For an yellow cake it should have been more moist and sweeter tasting.
Great cake and great frosting. My mom suggested it to me and I made cupcakes with it by cutting the bake time. Nice color inside and very delicious! Serve it with strawberries and ice cream and it turns into a fabulous, special shortcake. Try it for your next friend's birthday!
