The combination of chocolate, walnuts and marshmallows make this little cake a delight for the diehard sweet tooth. Making the marshmallow layer is easiest with the use of a candy thermometer, but the recipe is flexible enough to be done without one – just time the cooking sugar for 7 minutes after it starts a full boil. Glucose syrup can be purchased at a specialty cake store or bulk store.
