These are s'mores' slightly-less-messy cousin. I baked a large sheet of graham cracker dough and poured the marshmallow over it; once set I cut them into squares and covered them in chocolate. These are the perfect treat for a summer picnic.

Tuti-Fruti Rainbow Cake

Hidden under a plain vanilla frosting, this cake is a beautiful surprise to cut into. Each layer has a delicate complimentary flavor: orange, lemon, almond and peach. Colors and flavors can be adjusted to your specifications.

Mini Minnehaha Cake

Named after the fictional Princess Minnehaha in Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's 1855 poem Song of Hiawatha, this cake became a popular special-occasion desert in the late 19th century. My five inch miniature version combines four layers of delicate white cake with a rich walnut-apple butter filling, creamy burnt sugar frosting and decorative pecans.
