WEEKEND RECAP: Have Your Cake and Eat it Too!

A little late, but better late than never. The much needed long weekend was a good one. Got some cleaning done around the house and spent most of the weekend baking the most ridiculous cake ever, which I will get into a minute. But Friday night we had a fun double date with Kristin and Tim at Black Pig. Kristin and I split the cheese plate as an appetizer while the boys finished some drinks at Nano Brew. The cheese plate was an A+. I also kicked off the on-set of September with a Southern Tier Pumking Ale which was amazing! I had the croque madame for dinner which was pretty good, but I wouldn’t order it again. Bread to filling ratio was not to my liking. The rooftop patio was a keeper though! Oh yea and we stopped at Sweet Moses on the way home of course 🙂

 
 

So now this silly Ultimate S’mores cake. I pinned this cake a while back, but the recipe can be found here. I kinda had the nagging feeling that if I made this cake I would feel like I really accomplished something. So with the long weekend and a family dinner on Monday I decided to give it a go. First I baked the brownie and cookie layers on Saturday, then I baked the cheesecake layers on Sunday as well as made the marshmallow and chocolate buttercreams. Then I assembled the cake Sunday night so it could be refrigerated over night. Was it easy to cut? No! But did it taste good? You betcha. I had mine with a glass of milk (with ice like I like it).
