Cherry Soda Cake

Cake

1 1/2 cups miniature marshmallows

2 cups all-purpose flour

1 3/4 cups sugar

1 tsp. baking soda

2 sticks butter, cubed

1 cup cherry soda

3 Tbsp. baking cocoa

2 eggs

1/2 cup buttermilk

1 tsp. vanilla

Icing

1 1/2 sticks butter, softened

1 cup confectioners' sugar

1 (7 oz.) jar marshmallow creme

2 Tbsp. frozen cherry juice concentrate, thawed

1 tsp. vanilla

Preheat oven to 350º. Line bottoms of two greased 9-inch round baking pans with parchment paper; grease paper. Divide marshmallows between pans.
