For over a month now my friend Ambers husband Scott has been making comments on Facebook about when he is going to get the S'mores cake that I posted a recipe for on his page. Well, I gave in, knowing that he deserved a treat and made it for him!! Here is the blog that inspired it-
First you bake a yellow cake mix using the box directions in 2 round cake pans.
After they cool, frost the top of each half. Leave one layer in the cake pan.
Then spread graham crackers over the frosting.
The bottom layer can be placed on a cake plate while the top layer is then covered with marshmallows. Place this layer back in the oven on a low broil.
Remember to stay close so the marshmallows don't burn!
Take the layer out of the oven when the marshmallows are browned lightly.
The layer on the cake plate should have the layer of cake frosting, then graham cracker crumbs and then you put a layer of marshmallow cream on top. I learned later I used too much. So try to put a thin layer.
Now the cake is ready for assembly. Use a large spatula to go between the cake pan and top layer. Place it on top of the layer on the cake plate. I suggest using little skewers to hold the laters together in place(lesson learned). Ice the outside edges of the cake with the rest of the chocolate frosting.
Break the Hershey bars in 1/2. Place them on the outer edges of the cake using the frosting to stick to.
To clean the outer edges up I used some crushed graham crackers sprinkled on the edges.
I hope Scott enjoyed the cake and got his smore fix!
