Need a simple birthday cake

leesquare | Oct 19, 2010 07:38 AM

Hi all,
For his birthday, my 5-year-old and I will be making a cake together. :) I am in need of a simple recipe, or even recommendation of box mix, that will not be too difficult for us and still tastes good. (I don't bake cakes much.) He likes yellow cake. I am hoping that this will become an annual tradition for us--making cake as part of the celebration.

I would also like add icing. Is that difficult to make? At the store, I notice that they sell tubes of icing, and also icing mix. I bought the icing mix, but have no experience with it.

I would greatly appreciate your advice, tips, suggestions, etc.
