I've made a five-layer birthday cake once for a roommate in college, but I've never gone beyond that. And five-layers felt decadent and over-the-top at the time until I stumbled across this 7-layer s'mores cake boasting 2 brownie layers, 2 cheesecake layers, 2 chocolate chip cookie layers, marshmallow frosting, chocolate frosting and graham crackers.
In a season filled with pumpkin desserts, I always find it refreshing to dabble in chocolate and off-season flavors. A break from pumpkin is always welcome. So while this cake is obviously a treat and a significant time commitment, it's season-less in its appeal and looks most memorable for your next special occasion. Or for an average night with a very special chocolate-lover.
