One of the girls hosting it sent me some pictures and I figured, "I can do that." She wanted a cake that looked like a S'more.
I used a recipe from Trophy Cupcakes for their S'mores Cupcakes, but decided to just use the same recipe and make it into a cake.
Since I own one cake pan. ONE. (And that is thanks to Shannon and Chris) I didn't have many options, but I am glad I ended up using the Springform.
Here are the directions on how to make Smores Cupcakes but since I took a !@#$ ton of pictures of the process, you got to suffer through those as well. Be excited.
|Delicious cake batter|
|Ground graham crackers and butter.|
Before you put the graham cracker batter in the oven, sprinkle chocolate over it. It is DELICIOUS as a result!
You toss in the batter after it comes out and voila! A cake!
Be prepared for more random cake photos.....
Cake 2, I put some graham cracker batter on the top (because I had to make more for some weird reason *cough*cough*)
I have yet to perfect the art of making my cake come out flat so I can ice it without gaps. The only thing I have figured out is that once it is out of the oven, and cooled a little, but still warm, I put a cutting board on top of the cake with a little weight, and let it cool. I find that the other cake works really well as weight. :)
At this point I thought to myself, "wow, this is going really well" and unbeknownst to me my subconscious thought , "now how can I royally screw this up?"
Enter the screw-up!
I was going to just throw Marshmallow Fluff in between the layers, but decided I wanted to try a Marshmallow icing recipe. HORRIBLE IDEA!! HORRIBLE!!
Cake - pre-disaster. I have no post disasters because I was so upset that it pretty much fell apart. It tasted good, but that's all it had going for it.
Vote for Adam here or Harvey...he's pretty cute too!
