When I saw this recipe I thought that it was interesting that it did not have any flour. Since I like really s'mores I gave it a try. The cake's flavor is so good. I did not use
the icing recipe. I baked the cake, then I cut marshmallows in half and put the sticky sides on top of the cake, covering the whole thing. I then added broken up chocolate bars on top of the marshmallows. I placed the whole thing back in the oven until the marshmallows started to brown.

"Give Me S'more" Cake  
1/2 cup shortening
1/4 cup butter, softened  
1 cup sugar  
3 eggs 
1 teaspoon vanilla extract 
2-3/4 cups graham cracker crumbs  
3 teaspoons baking powder  
1 can (12 ounces) evaporated milk  
4 egg whites  
1 cup sugar  
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar  
1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract  
1-1/2 cups miniature semisweet chocolate chips, divided

Line bottoms of two greased 9-in. round baking pans with parchment paper; lightly coat paper with cooking spray. In a large bowl, cream the shortening, butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. Combine cracker crumbs and baking powder; add to the creamed mixture alternately with milk, beating well after each addition. 
Transfer to prepared pans. Bake at 350° for 18-22 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely.

In a large heavy saucepan, combine the egg whites, sugar and cream of tartar over low heat. With a hand mixer, beat on low speed for 1 minute. Continue beating on low over low heat until frosting reaches 160°, about 8-10 minutes. Pour into a large bowl; add vanilla. Beat on high until stiff peaks form, about 7 minutes.

Place a cake layer on a serving plate; spread with 2/3 cup frosting and sprinkle with half of chips. Top with remaining cake layer. Frost top and sides of cake; sprinkle with remaining chips. Yield: 12 servings.
