  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cups cocoa
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 stick butter (1/2 cup), softened
  • 1 cup firmly packed light-brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • White crystal sugar Filling:
  • 3/4 stick unsalted butter (6 tablespoons), softened
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 jar (7-1/2 ounces) marshmallow cream, such as Marshmallow Fluff
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • Red food coloring


Step 1

Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Line 2 large baking sheets with Reynolds® Parchment Paper.

Step 2

In medium bowl, combine flour, cocoa, and baking soda. In large bowl, with mixer on high speed, beat together butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add egg and vanilla, and beat to combine. Alternate adding flour mixture and buttermilk in small batches, beginning and ending with flour mixture.

Step 3

Mix until smooth, occasionally scraping sides of bowl. With a tablespoon, spoon mounds of batter 2 inches apart onto baking sheets. Sprinkle half with crystal sugar.

Step 4

Bake 15 minutes or until tops are puffed and cakes spring back when touched. Transfer to a rack and cool completely.

Step 5

In medium bowl, with mixer on high speed, beat together butter, powdered sugar, marshmallow cream, and vanilla until smooth, about 3 minutes. Add a drop or two of food coloring, and mix to tint pink.

Step 6

Makes about 1-1/2 cups of filling. Spread a rounded tablespoon of filling on flat sides of half the cakes. Top with other cakes.
