Quarantine Comfort

I have heard people say that stress can cause one to experience bouts of baking...
This was kind of one of those times and a first for myself.
Since the Corona Quarantine I've been cooking so many more meals and one night I decided I was going to give myself a break and bake the blues away.
Luckily My Love and I have had plenty of things to keep us busy so we've been very blessed through out the whole process.

I’ve made cake a couple of times and always from a box but after watching many seasons of BBC/Netflix The Great British Bake Off I thought, well I’ve got the time, let's try from scratch.
After checking out a few recipes I found the one I wanted to attempt and boy am I glad that I did!!!
Since the recipe is not my own I'll provide the exact recipe I followed.

It’s the Hershey's chocolate double layer cake and if you love chocolate this is the cake for you!
Since I don’t bake too often I didn’t have two round baking pans so I decided to do one round and one square. I’ve since made sure I have multiple pans just for this recipe!
If you try out the recipe let me know in the comments what you thought! 

I used organic cane sugar in place of granulated sugar, organic eggs and butter, I used white lily flour(my mom insists it's the best) and organic non GMO raw cane powdered sugar.
 I also didn't have any buttermilk so I used the milk and vinegar trick that the recipe recommended.
