Lucky Charms Marshmallow Cake

Last week we had a little birthday party for me. 29! We had some friends over, played records, made pizza, ordered extra pizza, ate cake, played salad bowl game. It was exactly what I wanted and I'm so thankful for everyone that came.

Joshua made me a vanilla cake and we covered it in white chocolate ganache frosting and then covered it in lucky charms marshmallows!!! Then I made a few white chocolate, sprinkles, and marshmallow shards and of course added a few pocky sticks. The cake was so tasty!

Also since Joshua was making the cake I wanted to make it an easy one. This definitely fit the bill. He was even surprised how fast it was to make. I'd make this one again. It's a bit dense and holds it's moisture.
