Cherry Marshmallow Cake

What a week!  Our two dogs ran off last week and we've spent every evening and all weekend looking for them.  They've been spotted around the area but we've not been able to get them back home yet.  Hopefully tomorrow will be a good day because we've place an ad in the local paper with a picture of the dogs.  When thinking about how upset we are that our two dogs are missing, we can't help but wonder how parents feel when their children are missing (or any loved one).  Situations like these sure make a person think about things and fill you with more compassion for others.

Let me tell you about this cake.  Our friend Mike told us about it and it sounded like something I had to make. Maybe it's because this cake sounds like a science experiment of sorts.  It has marshmallows on the bottom and pie filling on the top, and when the cake is baking, the marshmallows rise to the top and the pie filling sinks to the bottom.  Trust me - it's so good!  If you don't like cherries, you can use any flavor pie filling you like. 

By the way, I'm also having my first giveaway very soon.  If you like scrapbooking, check back next week for more details!
