I made this for Father's Day. It is delicious and deserves 5 stars. The cake itself is very moist and I baked it 40 minutes instead of the 25 minutes as stated in the recipe. Made the frosting as it was baking so had to keep frosting warm until cake was ready for the marshmallows. Added marshmallows to the top as soon as it came out of the oven. Let it sit for a few minutes until marshmallow softened and then poured frosting on top.

The cake is absolutely delicious!! The frosting was really good too but made the overall recipe too sweet for my personal tastes. Very rich and decadent dessert.
