my son is 1 on sunday and I am thinking about making a cake - is there any recipes I should try

I use a regular box cake mix, but I add an extra egg, use milk instead of water, and use double the amount of oil but I use butter instead. It comes out way better.
i would just use a box mix. happy bday to your son!!! :)
I have gotten alot of great recipes from www.allrecipes.com.
My favorite cake recipes are crazy cakes, no eggs or dairy; I have one for chocolate, applesauce and banana. PM me for any or all of the recipes.
Allrecipes.com is awesome! I get all my recipes from there! People who try them, then rate them and comment on them so you know if it's good or not! I personally do not like storebought cake mix. Here is my chocolate cake recipe that I use for almost all my cakes I got it from Allrecipes. I get alot of compliments on this cake. you can't taste the cofee but it makes it so moist. when you add the coffee it makes it look to watery but that's ok it bakes up perfectly moist and delicious!
2 cups all-purpose flour 2 cups white sugar 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder 2 teaspoons baking soda 1 teaspoon baking powder 1/2 cup vegetable oil 1 cup milk 2 eggs 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1 cup hot, strong coffeeDirections Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9x13 inch pan. In a large bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, cocoa, baking powder, and baking soda. Add the oil, milk, eggs, and vanilla, mix until smooth. Stir in the hot coffee last. Spread evenly into the prepared pan. Bake in the preheated oven for 25 to 35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean.
Quoting haileys_mommy06:If you love chocolate... Hershey's chocolaty chocolate cake with their chocolate frosting. You can find the recipe on the Hershey's cocoa box. So good and super moist! I hate dry cake.
thanks for all the advice,
it came out ok... just a few things to improve for next time
