During the summer I teach a baking and cooking camp to students from 2nd through 8th grade. At the end of cooking camp we teach the students some basics of baking and let them make a cake and then decorate it. This year my camp's head instructor found this recipe, so I can't take claim as my own even if i wish I could. :) It is my favorite cake and anyone who has tasted it claims it is their favorite as well. Trying it, you will NOT regret it and it's super easy!!

This tastes great with store bought icing or home made icing if you're up for the messy task. I make it with Buttercream icing; you can find the recipe for that here as well.
