  3. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean. Remove from oven and spread marshmallows on top. Return to oven for 10 minutes or until marshmallow are melted. Allow to cool before frosting.

The marshmallows are not suppose to melt just get soft. After adding marshmallows to top and returning to oven watch carefully, may not need a total of 10 minutes. Don't let the marshmallows brown or the top will be crusty and hard to slice cleanly.

This cake was a total disaster. Marshmallows didn't melt, but formed a crust on top of cake, that made it tough to cut and chew. No one could eat more than one bite.
