    3. In medium bowl, beat egg whites till stiff but not dry. Set aside.
    4. In large bowl, combine cake mix and water and beat 2 minutes, scraping sides and bottom of bowl to thoroughly mix. Gently fold in egg whites until combined with cake mix. Pour about 3/4 inch of batter into each mold.
    5. Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until cakes test done with clean wooden pick inserted in center. Cool completely and remove cakes from mold.
    6. Filling: Mix hot water and salt in coffee cup until dissolved. Set aside and cool completely.
    7. In medium bowl cream together shortening, powdered sugar and vanilla extract. Add Marshmallow Creme and beat on high speed until fluffy. Add cooled salt water and beat another minute.
    8. Using a bamboo skewer or wooden pick, poke a hole all the way through the cake, moving it around to hollow out a small area all the way through the cake for the filling. Using a filling tip on a cookie press or a cake decorator, fill each cake with filling. Fill from both ends if necessary.
