Stephanie Dodd


Magical trick cake is a great cake to let kids help with as they will love seeing the marshmallows transition from the bottom of the cake to the top. When the cakes goes in the oven, the marshmallows are on the bottom of the cake and when it is done, they rise to the top!!! This is a great cake to prepare as a family project!

This is a very easy cake to make when you need a dessert in a hurry! It is best served warm and ice cream or whipped cream are a great complement to this magical dessert!

Another version is use a white cake mix and cherry pie filling; make the exact same way. White cake with blueberry pie filling is also a good version. Any pie filling with cake of your choice will work. Very moist and needs no frosting! ENJOY!
