Wilbur Cocoa Marshmallow Cake

“The Wilbur Chocolate factory in Lititz, Pennsylvania is a wonderful little place that makes amazing chocolate. If you ever had an opportunity to sample Wilbur Buds then you know what I mean. From the "Cook’s Tours through Wilburland" recipe book of the early 1900s. They say on www.wilburbuds.com that this cake is quickly made and is very attractive and inexpensive. Excellent served with Pop's Fudge Frosting (Peanut Butter and Marshmallow) instead of the marshmallow whip (made single layer in an 11"x7" glass baking dish baked for 25 minutes).”
