In spite of the fact that this tastes okay, I was disappointed with the result. It is rated very high and usually the reviews from before help me to alleviate any issues for recipes rated so highly, but that was not quite the case for this. My husband really liked it so perhaps if I take away the title "yellow" and just call it "cake" it's fairly good. I used butter instead of shortening and 5 eggs instead of 4 to help it be less dense as other reviewers had suggested. If you get it out of your head that you're making a typical "yellow cake" it actually does taste fairly good. I also made a chocolate frosting on top with powdered sugar, brown sugar, butter, and cocoa powder, which helped.
