This version of champagne cake has a cooked marshmallow-coconut filling and fondant icing. Use the recipe for Champagne Cake and bake it in two 9 inch layers.
2 Coconut Filling: Over boiling water in double boiler, melt 16 marshmallows, butter and wine. Remove from heat and add coconut.
3 Fondant Frosting: Sift powdered sugar in top of double boiler. Add corn syrup and water. Stir over boiling water until smooth. Add the vanilla, salt and almond flavoring. For pink champagne effect, add 2 or 3 drops red food coloring.
