How to make it
- Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
- Grease and lightly flour the car cake pan
- In medium bowl sift together the flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
- In a large bowl, cream together the sugar and butter. Beat in eggs one at a time. Add vanilla. Add the flour mixture and milk, adding alternatively. Mix until incorporated. Pour batter into prepared pan. Fill pan about 3/4 full. Bake for 60 min.
- Let cake cool completely before frosting.
- Put softened butter in bowl and add sifted powdered sugar. Mix until creamed and add vanilla. If needed add a bit of milk to make it a creamy consistency. Separate into different bowls for food coloring. Add a drop or two of desired color and mix. Don't leave frosting out for too long it needs to be refrigerated.
- I also cut the cake in half and added frosting in the middle.
- Frost cake and decorate as you wish.
