The kind and amount of sweetener would have been good.

I'm making this now. Directions are terrible. What sweetener? How much? (I'm using 2 tbl of honey, we'll see how that goes). What prepared pan? Was the graham cracker mix supposed to be a crust? We'll see if the cake is good. Directions are terrible.
