Bake this perfectly moist and tender classic vanilla sheet cake in a round or sheet pan, baking dish, or even as cupcakes, and pair it with fantastically quick and easy chocolate frosting.
You can have your cake and eat your cupcakes too with one recipe that will give you both a delicious dark chocolate cake and cupcakes. A cake is usually saved until dessert, but if you bake 3 dozen mini cupcakes as well, then you can start sampling ahead of time. The frostings used on both the cake and the cupcakes are all from the same recipes to make best use of time.Read More →

Then I also made the same chocolate frosting and cherry buttercream as I did earlier for the cupcakes.Read More →
