My friend “L’s” (remember San Fran?) birthday is Cinco de Mayo (May 5th).  I love when my friends have birthdays on holidays. 

Anyway, her favorite cake is yellow with chocolate frosting and so I sent her this homemade yellow cake with dark chocolate frosting for her birthday.  I didn’t use shortening but substituted butter.
