Treat the camper in your life to a chocolate cake. This Camping Cake is easily decorated, no special tools or skills needed!


  • 2 layer chocolate cake I used an 8 inch pan
  • 10 standard size KitKat candy bars the kind with 4 sticks*
  • 1 graham cracker sheet
  • 2 fruit leather sheets
  • 1 piece of Laffy Taffy
  • 1 Teddy Graham
  • Chocolate candy rocks
  • 1 Tootsie Roll
  • 10 Oreo cookies


  • Unwrap KitKat candy bars, break them in half, and place them in the freezer. Let them chill while you frost a 2 layer chocolate cake as the base. Chilling the candy will prevent fingerprints in the chocolate when you place them on your cake later.
  • Here is the recipe for my favorite chocolate frosting.
  • Press KitKat bars along the size of your cake.
  • Break the graham cracker in half (you'll have 2 squares) and wrap with fruit leather. Press halves together to resemble a tent.
  • Cut Laffy Taffy to the size of the Teddy Graham cracker. Place bear on top of the candy "sleeping bag" just outside of the tent.
  • Roll/cut a Tootsie Roll into small logs for a fire. Place them into a small circle of candy rocks.
  • Crush the Oreo cookies and spread them along the base of the cake.
