      Firstly, a delicious cake, but with some caveats. Definitely add leavening to the cake by whipping the eggs and sugar for at least 10 minutes on high -- they should mount and lighten, and develop a luscious gloss. Then very heavily grease the pan. Something in the cake sinks to the bottom when baking, and makes a sugary crust which really sticks. You have to dig that baby out -- use a springform pan! Then you can just slide a knife under the baked cake to get it out, still a little difficult. Warm the marshmallow, instead of trying to spread a cold glob on the warm cake -- it will totally crush it. Microwave on low for just 10 seconds or so in the jar. Then pipe the chocolate icing on top, and marble it. Festive! The cocoa icing was VERY good. I would make this cake again, with these modifications.

      I really enjoyed this cake, but found it to be a little on the sweet side. I will try using only half the marshmallow and icing next time. Also, i had similar problems with the coconut sinking to the bottom of the cake. Overall, very good though.

      Not the prettiest cake, but tasted pretty good (especially for being gluten free). I beat the eggs for 5 minutes, then another 5 minutes after adding the sugar. While baking, the cake rose and filled the entire pan, although it sunk after adding the marshmallow (i also warmed). Next time i will also sprinkle the pecans and coconut over the cake batter, because they sunk to the bottom when i poured it out and wasn't evenly spaced. The coco covered the bad gluten-free flour flavor. Overall good, chocolaty and interesting cake.
