Birthday Cake

As promised, I made myself a birthday cake. I've been wanting to try my hand at it for a while now and with no friends or family with a birthday in the near future, I am left to make my own. I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out. It was a three layer cake (2 chocolate, 1 yellow cake) with vanilla buttercream frosting. The yellow cake was my first ever attempt at completely from scratch cake and it was fabulous. I used half of the yellow cake to make my cake pops so I rummaged through my pantry and made the two chocolate layers with a box mix. They both were delicious but the hands down winner was the yellow cake. Here's some before and after pics to make you salivate. I must add that this cake was so enormous that on the evening of my birthday I was driving around my neighborhood with packages of cake for friends and family and still had enough for next-day leftovers for the girls.

And just delicious!
