  1. Follow directions for cake recipe and bake in a 9×13″ pan. Set pan on a cooling rack and allow to cool completely.
  2. While cake is cooling, make filling.
  1. Place butter in a large bowl or stand up mixer and beat until light in color.
  2. Add marshmallow creme to the butter and beat until well incorporated.
  3. Add vanilla extract and beat until combined.
  4. Add powdered sugar in small amounts, beating well after each addition.
  5. If the filling becomes too stiff, add a tablespoon of milk at a time until it reaches the desired consistency.
  1. When cake is completely cooled, cut circles out of the cake. Slice the circles in half horizontally.
  2. Place 1-1 1/2 teaspoons of filling onto the bottom of each cake circle. Spread evenly and then replace top of circle. Press down gently. Continue with the remaining cake circles.
  3. To coat the cake circles, in a microwave safe bowl, melt the chocolate candy wafers, by microwaving 30 seconds at a time. Stirring well in between. Once completely melted, add 2 tablespoons of olive oil to the chocolate and stir well. This will help the chocolate pour smoothly.
  4. Place filled cake circles on a rack over a aluminum foiled covered baking sheet. The aluminum foil makes clean up easier. Using a spoon or ladle, spoon the chocolate over each cake circle, taking care to level off the top of each and to cover the sides. You can use a knife or inverted spatula to run around the sides of the circles to make sure they are well covered.
  5. Let chocolate set. If desired, melt the white chocolate in a microwave safe bowl, 30 seconds at a time, stirring well in between. Once melted, add 1 tablespoon of oil to the chocolate and stir well. Dip a spoon into the white chocolate and drizzle the chocolate over each coated cake circle until the desired effect is reached. Allow chocolate to set.
  6. As an alternative to coating: melt half of the chocolate wafers, adding 1 tablespoon of oil, mixing well. With a spoon, drizzle the chocolate over each cake circle. If desired, melt half of the white chocolate, adding 1/2 tablespoon of oil, mixing well. Once the chocolate has set, drizzle the white chocolate over the top of the chocolate drizzle until the desired effect is reached.
Recipe Notes

The cake and filling for this recipe can be made the day before, covered well and refrigerated. Do not cut the cake circles out until you are ready to fill and coat them as they will dry out. Allow the refrigerated filling to warm up and then stir well before filling the cake circles.
