Special birthday coming up? (Well, whose birthday ISN’T special?!) For those occasions when you’re trying to please a crowd; or the recipient can’t make up his/her mind which flavor to choose, offer this impressive four-layer, fudge-frosted chocolate and vanilla cake. Our thanks to Karyl Bannister and her Cook & Tell newsletter for the inspiration behind the simple vanilla cake. And, step-by-step photos illustrating how to make this cake are available at Flourish, our King Arthur blog.
