  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Butter and flour two 8-inch round cake pans.
  2. Beat 1/2 cup melted and cooled butter and eggs together in a bowl with an electric mixer. Add yellow cake mix, water, and pudding mix; beat on medium speed until batter is smooth and thick, about 1 minute. Divide batter between prepared cake pans.
  3. Bake cakes in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 20 to 25 minutes. Cool cakes for 5 minutes in the pans before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.
  4. Beat 1/2 cup softened butter and vanilla extract together in a bowl with an electric mixer. Add marshmallow creme and beat until smooth. Gradually beat in confectioners' sugar until just combined. Pour whipping cream into marshmallow creme mixture, increase speed to high, and beat until frosting is smooth and fluffy, about 1 minute.
  5. Place one cooled cake round on a plate. Spread about 1/3 of the frosting over the top of the cake. Place second cake on top of frosting layer. Spread frosting on top and sides of cakes.

So far I've made this recipe 5 times and every time people go bonkers for it. Something about the sugary sweetness combined with the moist cake makes people act like its laced with street drugs....

This cake is delicious!! I made it in mini loaf pan and used a filling tip to put the icing in the centre. They were Twinkie-licious!!!

This is a fantastic cake! Moist and flavorful. I made it just as recipe said.

Best cake I've ever produced. Very light and silky. Loved the frosting. I didn't change anything other than had no electric mixer.
