Slowly drizzle the Boiled Sugar into the egg whites while beating. Add Vanilla Extract and mix until combined.
  3. Once the cakes are cooled pipe the vanilla frosting high on top. Pat crushed graham crackers around the edge of the frosting. Top with 10 miniature marshmallows. Toast marshmallows with a kitchen torch. Top with a milk chocolate square.
