I made this wonderful cake for a community event that I recently attended. It was very well received. I love the recipe because you can always change a few simple ingredients to make an entirely different cake altogether. Adding the pastel marshmallows made for an impressive presentation. This cake is very moist, tasty and full of flavor.
