Though Ina Garten's candy-topped cake is ideal for birthday bashes, you can indeed look to this sweet-tooth-satisfying treat even when there's no celebration in sight. Ina pairs a moist, rich vanilla cake and a thick blanket of fluffy chocolate frosting on top to pack a one-two punch of flavor in this week's Most Popular Pin of the Week. Perhaps best of all, she bakes and frosts the cake right in a single sheet pan, so there's no need to transfer, frost and assemble multiple layers.
