I happen to have everything on hand except the minimarshmallows. I did have regular marshmallows, so I cut them up and they worked great.
Some people thought there was too much topping and not enough cake, so I may reduce that (I'd made it in a huge pan and doubled or was it tripled the topping to make it go across)

I bought more cranberries than I needed for Thanksgiving dinner; so I made this cake. I agree with the other review in that the topping ingredients are the perfect foil for the tart cranberries. I will make this again, but probably not until Thanksgiving 2010 rolls around.

I made this - mostly for myself - prior to Thanksgiving because I abhor pumpkin pie. It's really good! The sweet topping balances out the taste of the tart cranberries and the whole thing is not overly sweet, like I thought it might be. Thanks!
