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

maraschino cherries for garnish

Preheat oven to 350º. Line bottoms of two greased 9-inch 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 the 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 the flour mixture, whisking constantly. Pour into the prepared pans, dividing batter evenly (marshmallows will float to the top).

Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool in the pans for 10 minutes before removing to wire racks; remove parchment 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 with 1 cup frosting. Top with with remaining cake layer; spread with remaining frosting. Decorate with cherries.
