Without further ado, the cakey winner was Fat Girl Trapped in a Skinny Body's Seven Layer S'mores Cake!
I was secretly hoping that this would be the winner! Just look at all of those fabulous layers. Not to mention that every possible flavor was present and accounted for in this monstrous ten pounder: brownie, chocolate chip cookie, cheesecake, graham crackers, marshmallow, and chocolate. Seriously, can you get any batter...ahem, better?!
I'm not a great cake froster - oh well.
The cake totally took hours to create but it was worth all of the time, effort, money spent on ingredients, and dirty dishes!
Just some of the ingredients needed for this behemoth.
I pretty much followed all of the directions and recipes given on the original blogger's page, only changing a couple of things. My first change was baking all the individual layers in a 9x13 pan, since I didn't have two smaller springform pans. So I only ended up with one layer each of the brownie, cookie, and cheesecake rather than two. The cake was still impressively tall while being easier to cut into and having more to share.
Before I stacked my cake, I cut off the edges of the baked layers. (I ended up topping my cake off with the crumbled brownie and cookie crusts.) My other change was just in how I layered everything. Brownie, marshmallow, graham cracker, chocolate frosting, cookie, marshmallow, graham cracker, marshmallow, cheesecake, chocolate frosting for those keeping tabs.
This amazing cake certainly isn't for the faint of heart. It is incredibly rich and filling. Not to mention full of calories, fat, and sugar. But we won't mention that because we all know birthday calories don't count! :)
Thanks again to everyone for voting...if I could send you all a piece, I totally would! <3
