Dessert Bar

So, this whole wedding thing has me pondering crazy levels of DIY. When thinking desserts and favorite childhood memories, my grandma’s 7 layer cookies came to mind.

What I’m thinking of is something like a combination of 7 layer bars and a Smith Island multi-layer cake. Cakes could be thin, and layers could be repeated in various iterations, perhaps (i.e. a chocolate ganache and a chocolate cake layer). Decadent? Hell yeah.

1. A layer of brown butter cake.
2. Coconut icing.
3. A layer of walnuts.
4. A layer of graham cracker cake.
5. A layer of peanut butter frosting.
6. A layer of chocolate.
7. Topped with dulce de leche.
