Vanilla Sheet Cake with Chocolate-Ganache Buttercream

Recipe photo courtesy of Alpha Smoot

The quintessential birthday cake is reborn as an ultra-moist sheet cake. Rather than the usual cocoa powder–confectioners' sugar combo, the state-of-the-art frosting is a chocolate ganache that gets whipped with plenty of butter into glossy swoops.

    At 35 minute cook time the cake was way over done. Turned out dry. Frosting was way too loose. Had to chill it first to ice. This one is a miss.

    The cake was dry and the frosting pretty soupy. Wounds not make it again.
