Because 'marginal' implies that the satifaction (utility) from consuming an additional good continuously gets smaller and smaller. Whereas utility primarily looks at the overall satisfaction gained

The utility gained from consuming the last unit of a good. For example, if you consume one cake, your marginal utility may be quite high – say 10 units of satisfaction If you consume a second cake (in same day) your marginal utility of the second cake is likely to fall quite a bit to say +2 If you consume three cakes, you may even start to feel ill and get negative utility from a third cake.
