Two-layer chocolate cake with marshmallow frosting

I made this for Saint Patrick's day. :) It turned out pretty much how I wanted it to despite the fact that I had planned on piping on a clover in the middle... that didn't work out. :P
The chocolate cake is actually the same as 1942 Devil's food cupcakes. It's a really chocolaty, tender and moist recipe.
Here's the recipe for the (VERY easy to make) frosting...
1 egg white
1 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/2 cup boiling water
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Combine egg white, sugar and cream of tartar in a large bowl. Add boiling water. Begin at once to beat with electric mixer. Continue beating on high speed until thick and fluffy and mixture stands in stiff peaks. Add vanilla.
Frosts one 2-layer cake.
