So here’s the deal with this cake. a) it’s really good. Like, eat it in the kitchen with a fork off the counter kind of good. b) this batch did not come out the prettiest because apparently my baking powder went bad so it sunk in the middle. BUT…. I just slathered on a lot of frosting. A lot. And poured some sprinkles on there and called it good.

It’s really just a life lesson we are all learning about not judging a book by it’s cover. Right? I’ll keep telling myself that. Just passing on life lessons to everyone using ugly cakes.

So get yourself some fresh baking powder and make this cake! It’s my favorite classic yellow cake with milk chocolate frosting. Perfect for any occasion. Also perfect to eat off the kitchen counter with a fork.
