Moist Yellow Cake with Bittersweet Chocolate Frosting

Am I really the only person who had trouble with this cake? I baked it in 8-inch round cake pans, as directed, even though my instincts told me the batter was too near the top. Sure enough, it's overflowed and has made quite a mess. It is also taking much longer to bake and right now I have two mushroom-shaped cakes rather than nice layers. Haven't tasted it yet - it's still baking - but what a disappointment for my husband's birthday. Next year he gets my tried and true chocolate cake.
