Just started cake decorating and I’ve noticed that my chocolate cake always cracks. White doesn’t do this. Does it have something to do with the egg yolks? How do I prevent this from happening?

It might be because the dark color causes it to dry out faster; tenting a sheet of foil over the cake halfway through baking might help.

Is the crack at the center ? try using baking strips..  if you are decorating it and covering it w/ frosting,  just cut off the cracked part but only it the part with the crack is like a mound then frost.
Or maybe try the heating core.
