1/4 cup butter
1 tablespoon white wine
16 large marshmallows
1 cup flaked coconut

4 cups confectioners’ sugar
1/4 cup light corn syrup
1/4 cup water
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
2 drops red food coloring
6 large marshmallows

Directions

Prepare Champagne Cake I as directed, but bake in two 9 inch round pans. Allow to cool. When cool, put together with coconut filling.

Coconut Filling: Over boiling water in double boiler, melt 16 marshmallows, butter and wine. Remove from heat and add coconut.

Fondant Frosting: Sift powdered sugar in top of double boiler. Add corn syrup and water. Stir over boiling water until smooth. Add the vanilla, salt and almond flavoring. For pink champagne effect, add 2 or 3 drops red food coloring.

Keep frosting warm so it spreads evenly. With spoon, carefully pour fondant over top and sides of cake. Slice marshmallows into 4 rounds each, dip in fondant and place at random on top of cake.
