Did you make your mom a cake this past Mother's Day? If you didn't and you want to make it up to her, make her this fun strawberry marshmallow and cracker cake! Did I mention it's fun? It's fun! It's fun because it involves marshmallow fluff.
When is the last time I bought marshmallow fluff? I honestly don't think I ever did. What was I missing? A lot! Because this stuff is so much fun to use in a quick dessert. And when you're making a dessert from the very creative Cristina Tosi from Momofuku, you can expect it to have a little marshmallow fluff.So did you make your mom a cake this past weekend? It's ok if you didn't. If I had planned a little better, I would've shared this cake in time for you to make for her. But it's never too late. Surprise her with it any day of the week.
Or make this strawberry marshmallow and cracker cake for yourself! The only bad thing is you have to let it set overnight in the fridge. Patience...it's so worth the wait! The other bad thing is that if you like a sweet and salty combo as much as I do, you will find yourself going back for more little tastes. All for recipe testing purposes, that's what I told myself.
My son called it the mousse cake. He keeps asking me when am I going to make the strawberry mousse cake again. Soon.
This can be your go-to cake to make all strawberry season. It's so pretty and delicate. Your lucky friends or family you will make this for will not expect the cracker surprise and will thing you slaved hours over it. But remember: Let it set over night! That's the most important thing to remember after adding marshmallow fluff to your grocery list.
