52 cakes: S'mores Inspired - Chocolate cake with Marshmallow Frosting

IMG_1107_edit IMG_1102_edit
I did a ton of research when James requested a s'mores birthday cake. I found s'mores ice cream cakes. I found no-bake s'mores cakes. I found pages of smushy, gushy, messy s'mores cakes. Messy cakes really aren't my thing. I guess if it was an intentional part of a design I could get used to it but it's just not my style.

So instead of recreating a s'mores cake created by someone else I decided to make a s'mores cake, Hannah style. Chocolate cake. Marshmallow Buttercream Frosting. Graham Cracker decoration and dressings.

I should probably add that the Marshmallow Buttercream Frosting is by far the greatest frosting I have ever made/had ever. I was so impressed and in awe of how quick, easy and delicious it turned out. You should definitely give it a shot next time you bake a cake!

I haven't decided if I'm going to bake this weekend. We are going to be in full pack up mode, finalizing our furniture purchases and DIY projects. I'll definitely be baking the first weekend in the new place so maybe I'll double up again... who knows. I'm just glad March is almost here. Regular schedule, here I come!

Have a great weekend!
