The Classic with Fudge Frosting

This month's cake voting ended in a tie, so we were allowed to pick from 2 choices, since yellow cake with chocolate frosting is my absolute favorite cake pairing, I was so excited that The Classic with Fudge Frosting was among the choices.

The cake batter was yummy,we may have licked the beaters! And the fudge frosting came together easily. Overall, I was pleased, though the fudge frosting was not quite as sweet as I would like, I might would cut it 1/2 semi-sweet, 1/2 milk chocolate if I made it again. Recipe is here if you want to give it a whirl!

I love yellow cake with chocolate too! I think that must be what my Mom always made for me.

I thought the fudge lacked sweetness too when I tasted it on its own but I thought it went great with the cake... I guess everybody's taste is different ;) Your cake looks lovely! Great job!

Funny that I thought the combo of the cake and the frosting was too sweet ha! Just shows how different everyone is.

Oh such a classic cake! It really has to be round and lots of layers too, only way for that combo.

Becca said...

Oh I think a combination of semi-sweet and milk chocolate in the frosting would be perfect!

Your cake looks lovely, by the way :)

What a pretty cake! Thanks for your thoughts on the frosting--since I made the other cake, it's nice to have a review of whether the fudge frosting recipe is good or not.
