a yummy gooey mess

For Father's Day I wanted to make my dad a cake.  I've been wanting to try a delish looking cake recipe that I came across on Pinterest and, I thought this past weekend would be the perfect excuse for cake consumption.

Campfire Delight: Rich Chocolate Malted & Toasted Marshmallow Cake
Click HERE for the recipe!
I followed the recipe pretty much exactly.  The only change I made was using a cake from the box and only did 4 layers instead of 6.  I used Duncan Hines Triple Chocolate Cake and I highly recommend it!  It has little chocolate chunks! Love!
The filling actually has toasted marshmallows in it! I have to admit that I toasted a few more than needed so I could eat some!
Yeah...that was not fun to clean up, and I don't think it was supposed to be that runny!

Baking this cake reminded me of the cake from Sleeping Beauty! A big mess!
The malted chocolate frosting was pretty tasty! It has Ovaltine in it so I kept telling myself I was getting vitamins from licking the spoon!

I wanted to add a little texture so, I cut a design into a piece of plastic and gently added lines around the cake.
Very simple, and I really like how it turned out.
 Chocolate sprinkles was the perfect finishing touch!
I had to quickly take pics of it from a certain angle before it slid over and fell apart.  I def did something wrong because it did not turn out pretty and perfect like the recipe I followed. It tasted amazing though! That's all that matters right?
Just call me Fauna...
