Classic Yellow Cake with Chocolate Fudge Frosting

 Yellow cake holds it’s own amongst all the “fancier” cakes. In fact, a lot of the time I’d opt for “yellow” cake over vanilla. (I mean, really the only difference is that “yellow cake” uses the whole egg whereas “white” only uses the yolk.) Also it reminds me of those sweet, but let’s face it, really edible Duncan Hines cake box mixes!
