Baked Yellow Butter Cake

The.Aubergine.Chef's picture
Here is a cake I did for a friend of a friend. I would use fondant to make the decorations on the side and maybe try using some black sprinkles if I were to make this style of cake again. Otherwise I'm pretty happy with how it came out and the birthday woman was very happy with it - and how it tasted! What would you do if someone asked you to design a "40 is the New Black" sheet cake?
