A while back I came across this cake on pinterest...naturally, I pinned it..I mean, who wouldnt! The thing is insane! And as the picture haunted me over and over again on my food board I finally decided it should be made for our 5 year anniversary. As luck would have it both Riley and I became ill that week and no cake got made :/ so it became "the cake I will make for Ryan's 29th birthday". The day before his birthday, I spent most of the day baking off the cakes layers. I started with cheesecake, and ended with cookie cakes...and somewhere between it all I: lost my mind, became overheated, doubted that ANY of it would turn out, forgot to eat lunch and nearly dropped TWO of the cake layers on the floor...it was a long day. Sunday I was up early cleaning up the mess from the night before, I know, I know "never go to sleep with a dirty kitchen" but I was pooped man! and sometimes the mess just has to wait damn it! Anyway, I cleaned my mess, so I could ultimately make another mess and got started on the frosting making...I changed a few things from the original recipe...for one, I used Ricemellow creme instead of Marshmallow fluff for my Marshmallow frosting (RiceMellow pretty much taste the same as marshmallow fluff just its well, made from rice...and its GMO-Free, Gluten-free, and Vegan!) Second, I used my Ganache recipe found here, as the frosting inside the cake. Third, I only made one layer of cheesecake (and I topped it with caramel sauce) And last I used this brownie recipe.
