Fold in stiffly beaten egg whites. Bake at 375 degrees F. for 15 to 20 minutes in jelly roll pan (10x15x1-inch) that has been greased, lined with waxed paper, and greased again. Turn out onto towel sprinkled with confectioners' sugar. Remove waxed paper. Roll chocolate sponge and towel up together to cool. Unroll. Whip cream and sweeten slightly with sugar. Fold in marshmallows. Spread over chocolate sponge. Roll as for jelly roll. In small mixing bowl, cream butter (or margarine) that has softened to room temperature. Add confectioners' sugar, salt, melted chocolate, vanilla, and enough warm cream (approximately 1 tablespoons) to make of spreadable consistency. Frost cake roll. Sprinkle with chopped nuts. Chill. Slice to serve.
Note: For a richer, more satiny icing increase butter or margarine to 1/4 cup.
