I made this Coca-Cola Cake for a very special person…my sister!

Today is her 30th birthday and we will be celebrating with a picnic in Central Park followed by some outdoor music by the New York Philharmonic.  I chose this recipe because it is a cake that can be easy transported in our picnic basket – I think she will love it!

Wow, I can’t believe my little sister is now in her thirties!  The best is yet to come and I know she will rock this decade even more than the last one.   Happy Birthday!!

This “Cocoa-Cola Cake” is a classic southern sheet cake that sounds a bit counter-intuitive on paper, yet tastes like heaven in every bite!

The cake batter is poured into a 9 x 13 pan and then topped with mini marshmallows.  I had no idea what would happen to these marshmallows.  Would they get toasted?  Would they melt into the batter?  Is the cake going to taste like a s’more?

As for the frosting, the instructions call for it to be poured over the cake immediately while it is still warm.  This is completely the opposite of every other cake recipe!  I had no idea what would happen, but I just followed the instructions and hoped for the best.

I found that the marshmallows did get a bit toasted in the oven but then the warm frosting poured on top made them magically disappear into the final product.  Such delicious culinary wizardry.

Of course, there is Coke in the batter as well as in the frosting.  You don’t necessarily taste the soda, but it makes for a perfectly moist texture.  I will certainly make this cake again!
