Does anyone have a really good birthday cake recipe or know of a website that has some?

Nothing fancy, I am not opposed to using a box cake mix! I wanted to make a layer cake and I have never made one before. Thank you!

  • I use this one and everyone including the kids love it. I dont use almonds on the top like pictured on the photo. I use a cream cheese frosting instead.

    Another one we do and the kids seem to like is this strawberry pound cake recipe and its sooo easy and uses reg store cake mix but with a flare. Again I dont use a bundt and just cook it in a regular cake pan, and then either use cream cheese frosting or chocolate.

  • ok, what is better than a fun-fetti cake?! it's from a box and always moist!

    use two cake round pans. let cool completely. put frosting on top of the first. plop on the second cake and frost all around!
