Prepare your 6lb portion of Yos Ultimate Chocolate Cake batter. Set aside.
Prepare your chocolate ganache. Set aside.
Prepare your 7 Minute Frosting. Set aside.
Prepare your Simple Syrup. Set aside.
Toss your sugar and graham crumbs together in a bowl. Pour in melted butter and mix together.
Divide your graham crust evenly between the two 8 round cheesecake pans.
Press the graham crust down firmly into the pans using a 4 round cake pan or flat glass. Chill for 20 minutes.
Fill two 8 round cheesecake pans with 1 lbs of chocolate batter directly on top of the graham cracker crusts. Fill one 8 round cake pan with 2 1/2 lbs of chocolate batter.
Bake at 350 degrees for, 1hr or until a cake tester comes out completely clean. Let cool completely in their pans.
Remove your cakes from their pans and level them. Sprinkle with simple syrup.
Place one of your graham crusted cakes, graham side down, onto your serving platter. Spread ganache onto that layer, then top with Oreos. Spread 7 Minute Frosting onto your Oreo layer.
Place your 8 round Chocolate Cake on top. Use a spatula to scrape any excess frosting. Repeat the process of your previous cake layer. Place your final graham crusted chocolate cake on top, making sure the graham cracker crust is on top!
Prepare you Smoreos. Sandwich a toasted marshmallow and an Oreo between two graham crackers.
Spread a layer of chocolate ganache onto the top of your cake, and lay your Smoreos on top.
Using your river rock chocolate, form an inner circle within the Smoreo border. Use your cinnamon sticks to create wood for the campfire cake top.
Cut flames from thinly rolled gumpaste (letting dry overnight). Paint Wilton Colour Mist in Red and Yellow on both sides to enhance colour. Once dry, place on top of the cinnamon sticks.
As an extra touch, place a pre-made banner above the campfire.
