Sweet Cheeks Coca Cola Cake

As you may know, I'm very fond of Coca Cola cake, and have been experimenting with the original recipe I found on pinterest. The first time was a disaster. The second one was tasty, but not too pretty. So I kept trying (and enjoying the practice cakes), and eventually I got the perfect combination of amazingly delicious and pretty enough to eat. So I would like to share that recipe with all of you!

Sweet Cheeks Coca Cola Cake

Cake Ingredients: 
  • 2 cups flour

  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon

  • 1 1/2 cups mini marshmallows
  • 1/4 cocoa powder
  • 1 c. coca-cola
  • 1/2 c. buttermilk 
    • You can buy powdered buttermilk in the baking section, and just re-hydrate it according to the directions to get 1/2 c. liquid buttermilk. Saves on buying the stuff from the milk section and then having extra.
