Here is a birthday cake, it is practical and at the same time it can be made fancy with Decorator Frosting (found on our site). One or more layers can be tinted by adding food coloring.

This is the worst cake I ever tasted. It tasted like cornbread. It was too salty and heavy. This is not a good recipe at all.

This is the single worst recipe I've ever gotten from this website - the recipes are usually great. The cake tasted like badly cooked pancakes.
