I love love love cake. Something about it is so comforting, satisfying, and just makes me feel like the world is okay. But then I eat the whole thing and well, still feel good! My DH and I used to be addicted to boxed yellow cake and a tub of chocolate frosting. It was our go-to dessert when we were craving sweet. Plus, box cakes are such an easy recipe to make. We would go to the store and buy 4 items, yellow boxed cake, chocolate frosting, milk, and vanilla ice cream. Milk for my DH to drink and ice cream for me to eat with my cake.
Then one day I got to thinking, “I make all these other cakes from scratch and they taste so much better than a box mix, why not make a yellow cake from scratch with a chocolate buttercream?” It was a ‘Duh’ moment for sure. To illustrate how good this cake & buttercream frosting, the delicious rating will include photos.
Yeah, let’s just say I did that to a few slices…

Hello beautiful cakes!
Be careful when adding the cocoa powder and powdered sugar to the butter, start on a slow speed so it doesn’t all explode on you!
Do no eat all the frosting, I almost did!
Frost with a crumb coat if you would like.
