She took an hour to eat a single one.
That’s right, the first time my middle child had her first s’more, she would only take the tiniest bite at a time because she loved it so much. Now, mention s’mores and she goes into an excited frenzy.
Perhaps we should have s’mores more often at our house.
Or…how about a delicious s’mores cake instead? You’re going to love these 17 s’mores cakes, cupcakes, and pies. I just know it!
But First, Make Your S’mores Cakes Shine!
If you’re going to go to the effort of making cakes or cupcakes, you’re going to want them to look as good as possible. Here are my favorite tools to make desserts really stand out:
- You’ll want an offset spatula to make a gorgeous topping, whether it’s smooth or swirled.
- Get those beautiful toasted marshmallow peaks with a mini blow torch.
- Round cakes always look best on a pretty cake stand.
- Or, if you’re making a sheet cake, you’ll want it to be in a pretty pan, too.
Now, on to the fun part!
17 Insanely Fun S’mores Cakes & Cupcakes
Here’s a fun twist on making a s’mores cake! Instead of cake layers, Ashlee Marie gives you five layers of peanut butter cookies in her Peanut Butter Cookie S’more Cake. So you still get all the crunch from those traditional s’mores in addition to the chocolate, marshmallow, and some peanut butter too! (I can’t wait to try this!)
This S’mores Poke Cake from The Cookin Chicks is filled with pockets of marshmallow fluff…and then topped with a second layer of cool whip before being garnished with graham cracker crumbs, marshmallows, and chocolate chips. Talk about ooey-gooey goodness.
Cupcakes are great because they’re built in portion control, right? Well, if you’re a chocolate lover, I dare you to stop at just one of these S’mores Cupcakes with Secret Filling by Midget Momma. (Spoiler: It’s ganache! Yummmmmmm)
Y’all, you NEED to check out this recipe for Salted Caramel S’mores Cake from Mama Loves Food. It’s got far more than just caramel added to the cake. I can’t wait to give it a try with my kids. Something tells me they won’t complain.
Yep, another poke cake. But this one is different! Instead of pockets of fluff, this Amazing Poke Cake by The Typical Mom rewards you with fudgy chocolate in every bite. A chocolate lover’s dream.
