Coca-Cola Cake

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!!
