I’ve always loved the combination of yellow cake layers with a chocolate filing and frosting, and so this is my dream birthday cake. You can make the ganache filling while the layers are baking and assemble the cake as soon as they both cool off. If you prefer an all-chocolate cake, use the devil’s food layers instead.
