My mom always made white cakes growing up and I never really liked them as much as yellow, no offense Liz. There is something about yellow cake with chocolate frosting that I just love. This is a good, basic yellow cake recipe great for layer cakes, sheet cakes and cupcakes.
Set the pans on a cooling rack for a few minutes then completely transfers the cakes over to the cooling racks and let stand until cool.
Spread one of the many frostings on it and you are good to go!
