Celebrate anytime with this decadent and moist best-ever chocolate cake recipe topped with my favorite fudge frosting and vibrant homemade sprinkles.
To Make the Cake:
Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Butter and line 3 8-inch x 2-inch round cake pans. You can use 2 times, I just wanted 3 layers in mine.
To make the Fudge Frosting:
In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat room temperature butter until lightly fluffy. Add the sifted powdered sugar 1 spoon at a time and mix well. It will get light in color and bigger
If the frosting is too thick, slowly add more milk or half & half, one tablespoon at a time, until it reaches the desired consistency.
Place 1 layer, flat side up, on a flat plate or cake pedestal.
*You can make a replacement for buttermilk by mixing 1 cup of milk with 2 tablespoons of lemon juice. let it sit for 30 minutes at room temperature, then use.
