Yellow Cake with Fudge Icing

Yellow Cake with Fudge Icing

This Yellow Cake with Fudge Icing was hubby’s birthday cake again this year…even though he is a chocoholic through and through, he picks a cake he knows our daughter would love.  It’s no wonder she has a sign above her bed that reads “The Queen’s Bed” in curlicued calligraphy.  I used the Smitten Kitchen’s yellow cake…made with buttermilk, it’s sweet and tender with a fine crumb…then added our favorite fudge icing. This chocolate delicacy is created by simmering brown sugar, cream and semi-sweet bars till you have a lovely fudge sauce with delectable caramel undertones.  This sauce is chilled till firm, then whipped….I could eat it by the spoonful.
