Wow! It was such a breath of fresh air to see a Coca Cola Cake recipe!!! I didn't think anyone else made that (I've been making it forever, but every time I mention it to people, they look at it funny because they've never heard of it!).
Anyway, my recipe is a bit different, and I actually top it with a layer of sweet condensed milk and then unsweetened shredded coconut! It's very yummy! I'll be trying your recipe too though!

I am saving this recipe, that sounds delicious!
cute pic- we're glad you're back too! :)

Christi - I actually do not ice this cake. When the cake is still warm, I get a fork and poke some holes all over the top so that some of the condensed milk will seep under and you'll get some sweet goodness in the middle of the cake as well. I literally just pour the can (or carton or jar - depends on the type you're getting) over the warm cake and spread it a little with one of those mini silicone spatulas. Then I get the shredded coconut and sprinkle it all around to cover the entire cake - so the "look" you'll get is of a coconut "iced" cake. Let me know if you make it and if comes out good!

That's kind of funny... my hubby's birthday was yesterday too. He said no cake though because we are on a diet. :o( But maybe next year... Thanks for posting... it looks delicious!
