Ingredients

  • 1-½

    cups miniature marshmallows

  • 2

    cups all-purpose flour

  • 2

    cups sugar

  • 1

    teaspoon baking soda

  • 1

    cup butter, cubed

  • 1

    cup cherry-flavored cola

  • 3

    tablespoons baking cocoa

  • 2

    eggs

  • ½

    cup buttermilk

  • 1

    teaspoon vanilla extract

  • FROSTING:

  • ¾

    cup butter, softened

  • 1

    cup confectioners' sugar

  • 1

    jar (7 ounces) marshmallow creme

  • 2

    tablespoons frozen cherry-pomegranate juice concentrate, thawed

  • Fresh sweet cherries with stems

Directions

Preheat oven to 350°. Line bottoms of two greased 9-in. round baking pans with parchment paper; grease paper. Divide marshmallows between pans. In a large bowl, whisk flour, sugar and baking soda. In a small saucepan, combine butter, cola and cocoa; bring just to a boil, stirring occasionally. Add to flour mixture, stirring just until moistened. In a small bowl, whisk eggs, buttermilk and vanilla until blended; add to flour mixture, whisking constantly. Pour into prepared pans, dividing batter evenly. (Marshmallows will float to the top.) Bake 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pans 10 minutes before removing to wire racks; remove paper. Cool completely. For frosting, in a small bowl, beat butter and confectioners' sugar until smooth. Beat in marshmallow creme and juice concentrate on low speed just until blended. Place one cake layer on a serving plate; spread top with 1 cup frosting. Top with remaining cake layer; spread with remaining frosting. Decorate with cherries. Yield: 12 servings. Note: To frost sides as well as top of cake, double amounts for frosting.
