Yellow Cake with Chocolate Frosting

One of the first things I learned about my husband is that his favorite dessert in the world is yellow cake with chocolate frosting… as is my father-in-laws. I realized quickly that I would need to find some amazing recipes to make this cake from scratch for special occasions with the Marshall guys :).

I looked through a lot of recipes and ended up going with a cake and frosting recipe from an awesome food blog, Smitten Kitchen.

The yellow cake recipe can be found here and the chocolate frosting can be found here (the cake recipe calls for a sour cream frosting but I wanted to go with something a little sweeter).

I made it this weekend for Eric’s birthday dinner. We had a spaghetti dinner with family and friends followed by this delicious cake. Great way to celebrate!
