MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 15, 2012

Not sure what I did wrong. The marshmallows were all on the top when I took it out of the oven. The cake was mediocre but the frosting was really good.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 30, 2010

My kids loved this. The cake tastes a lot like the white cake even though it looks like it is chocolate (and has cocoa in it). The frosting is wonderful! I did not use the nuts though as my kids don't care for them.
