Spread Butter Icing over top of cake layers. Place 1 of the layers on flat serving plate; stack remaining layers on top. Refrigerate for 1 hour or until icing is firm.

Remove 1 cup (250 mL) Fluffy Icing; set aside. Spread remaining icing over top and side of cake. While icing is still soft, make basket weave on side: Pull skewer vertically from bottom to top at 3/4-inch (2 cm) intervals. Pull skewer horizontally at 3/4-inch(2 cm) intervals from 1 line to next, stopping at each line and lifting at end of stroke.

Using piping bag fitted with 1/4-inch (5 mm) plain tip, pipe reserved icing into beads around top and bottom edges. Press cookies into top, propping with marshmallows.
