    Cut opening in bottom of cake to put in marshmallow filling. I just cut a circle (save that) and then took some of the cake out and ate it. HaHa! Fill with some of the marshmallow creme( I put about a cup or more) and replace circle of cake you cut out.Invert cake onto a cake plate,and then frost with remaining marshmallow topping and coat with coconut.
