Chocolate Marshmallow Ying Yang Cake

I made this cake for our nephew's birthday. He is 17 and requested a chocolate cake with chocolate icing decorated as a ying yang. I chose to go with flavor over looks with this cake. I really wasn't feeling the design, so I concentrated on making it taste perfect. It didn't come out too bad, but I know it could have looked so much better had I spent more time on it. I made a three-layer Hershey's Perfectly Chocolate cake. I filled it and iced half of it with marshmallow icing and the other half with Hershey's Perfectly Chocolate Frosting. I had some cake complications and had to re-make the cakes because they got stuck in the pans. I don't know what happened, but the second cakes came out perfect. I think it came out pretty good despite the complications. Plus it tasted awesome. If you love chocolate and marshmallow then you will love this cake.


  1. Found your site from Foodie Blogroll. the Hershey's cake looks divine, will try to adapt it to gluten free.

  2. What a scrumptious blog you have!


  3. This cake is so cute! I love it! I also LOVE marshmallow frosting, so I am sure I'd love this cake. :)

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. It's nice to know other people had the same Wilton class experiences I did (even though I wish we all had good experiences). I guess I was just hoping for something completely different.

    Don't be scared of fondant. It's actually so easy! I love working with it, way more than I do buttercream! :)
