5. Add vanilla and self-rising flour in bowl. Mix to combine.

7. Into the baking pan, transfer the mixture. Spread evenly. Pop the pan in oven and bake for 40 minutes, or until a toothpick when inserted in the center comes out clean.
8. Remove pan from oven and spread marshmallow crème over hot cake. Let the cake cool in pan.
9. For frosting, in a separate mixing bowl, add butter, milk, confectioner's sugar, vanilla, and cocoa powder. Beat until smooth. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and pop it in refrigerator until cake cools.

TIPS
If you do not have self rising flour, then for each cup of all purpose flour add ½ teaspoon of baking powder and ½ teaspoon of salt.
You can reduce the cooling time by place the cake in refrigerator for 1 ½ hour and then for ½ an hour in freezer.
