I haven't had much time to write, and I have to keep this one short, but I couldn't hold this one back anymore - this cake, also known as a Campfire Cake from Sweetapolita, is RIDONCULOUS. And it is by far the best looking cake I have ever made.
Soft, incredibly light layers of chocolate cake are layered with a toasted marshmallow frosting (yes, you read that correctly) and then the outside of the cake is frosted with a delicious malted chocolate frosting.
Are you drooling yet?
I had to make some adjustments to the original recipe, adding a bit more powdered sugar to the toasted marshmallow frosting and minimizing the amount of marshmallow fluff that I used on the inside layers. I also made this cake a three-layer cake as opposed to a six-layer cake, because, let's face it, I just don't have enough patience to make a six-layer cake. Especially on Thanksgiving morning, when I made this cake.
This cake is a for reals party stopper. For reals, for reals.
And as I re-read that sentence, I realize that the term is "show-stopper", not "party stopper". Who would want a party stopping cake? That would be a pretty crappy cake.
If you want to check out the cake in all of it's glory, head over to Sweetapolita. And have some fun around that site - she is unbelievable.
