My 'Smore Cake Adventures...

SO I am currently working to develop a 'Smore cake recipe, where the layers of cake will act as the "graham crackers" of the 'Smore, and I just found a history fact that I found quite interesting. Apparently when a minister by the name of Rev. Sylvester Graham invented the graham cracker, he initially intended that it be a "lust" suppressant to keep children and adults alike from "touching themselves" and becoming overindulgent in "carnal exercise". The random facts you find whilst creating a recipe can be quite entertaining.... Well, at least they are for me after being awake for 20 hours straight, 12 of which were spent at school.

Anyways, good night!



P.S. If you have any ideas or recipes for a graham cracker flavored cake that won't be too heavy and "fruit cake-like" let me know.
