Today is Buck's birthday--YAY!! For his birthday cake, he requested this yellow cake with chocolate frosting, which he dubbed the Fackler Cake for the family who gave us the recipe. Mrs. Fackler was kind enough to share her recipe with us, and Buck couldn't have been happier that she was willing to let me have it. He has long loves this cake--especially the icing--and he's thrilled to celebrate his birthday with it.
1 box Duncan Hines Butter Cake Mix (and the ingredients it requires--water, 3 eggs, amd 1 stick butter)
2 cups sugar
1 stick butter
1/2 cup milk
5 Tbsp cocoa
Cook cake in two 9" pans according to package directions. For icing, mix butter, sugar, and cocoa in a heavy pan. Bring mixture to a boil and cook 2-3 minutes, stirring often with a whisk. Remove from heat and cool. Icing will thicken as it cools. Frost the cooled cakes and serve.
