  1. Coca-cola?
    In a cake? a cake....hmmmm

  2. I had the same reaction as River, but you can't knock it 'til you try it, right?? I'll let you know how it turns out for me!!!

  3. I'm a Pepsi girl, but that should work.

    1. I'm sure it would. It's the combination of the fizz and sugar, I think.

  4. Oh goodness, a guilty pleasure! I think the word ‘Diet’ will be removed from your vocabulary once you try this. Haha! Actually, I think this cake is one of the best comfort foods during our down moments. Who needs to diet when a coca cola cake can make you happy and forget all your troubles?
