S’mores Cake

S’mores Cake

Both of my parents turn 60 this year, so my sisters and I planned a big surprise party for them. The party was this past weekend and it went better than I could have imagined! They were totally surprised and everyone seemed to have a great time. I made lots of tasty food, but the real showstopper was this crazy s’mores cake. Not only was it big and multi tiered, but I got to light it on fire at the party!
