Best Birthday Cake

This recipe for the Best Birthday Cake with moist and fluffy yellow cake paired with rich and creamy milk chocolate buttercream is perfect for celebrating!

Our go-to birthday cake recipe! Everyone goes crazy for it!

Today is my birthday! To celebrate 24 years of life I’m sharing what I think is the best birthday cake recipe. Woohoo! It’s a recipe that will please anyone, kids and adults alike. It’s rich and flavorful without being cloying. The best part is that you can decorate it any way you want. I beaded pretzel M&Ms around the bottom edge because they’re my favorite candy and it gives it a pretty and fun effect. In a few days it’ll also be Handle the Heat’s birthday! 6 years old and better than ever. Thank you so much to everyone who has read, subscribed, followed, commented, and made my recipes over the last 6 years. Your support in pursuing my dreams has helped to make my twenties better than I could have ever imagined.
