Marshmallow Coating 

1. In a heatproof bowl or stand mixer bowl, add the egg whites, sugar, vanilla, and salt.  
2. Place over a pot of simmering water and stir for 9 minutes. 
3. Remove from the heat and whip using a stand mixer or hand beaters on medium speed until light and fluffy. This usually takes roughly 5-6 minutes. 


Assembling The Cake 

1. Remove the cake from the fridge and cover with the marshmallow mixture. 
2. Next, create little swirls and texture in the marshmallow frosting. 
3. Using a blow torch or large matches, toast the marshmallow until golden.
