Yes, more cake but this is the last one for a few posts. I actually made this cake before I made the Double Layer Chocolate Cake and the Red Velvet one. Monica at Lick the Bowl Good called it Cracker Barrel Old Country Store Coca-Cola Cake. That's a mouthful. I made this for the Twins' baseball coach's birthday and just called it Old Fashion Coca-Cola Cake.
I have to tell you I much prefer this "chocolate" cake over the double layer one. I don't think this is a true "chocolate" cake. It's more along the lines of a red velvet. You may find this shocking or not.Especially after reading my last post but the frosting made the cake for me. It was a chocolate one but following Monica's suggestion I added a 1/2 tsp of cinnamon to it and oh, man I was scraping the pot clean to get the last little bits if it. I usually have no problem walking away from anything chocolate especially chocolate cake but not this time I actually ate two and half pieces of it in two days. While all the kids liked this and some actually ate two (Will three, :-)) pieces the parents I think enjoyed it more. In the car ride home the Twins mentioned that their teammates said it was good but it wasn't the best thing I've made.
On another note: Thanks for your letting me know what books you have read that have been good. I'm starting a list, so that next time I go to the bookstore I'm not wondering around like a big dufus.
Baseball update: The Twins played four baseball games this weekend two on Saturday and two on Sunday. We won all four games! One was a come from behind (by four points)in the last inning to tie the game and then win it in the tie breaker inning. Jalen drove in two runs to tie the score and Devon was supposed to sacrifice bunt to move the runner over but instead he beat out the throw and later scored the winning run. Yay, GO STING! I'm going to try and get a current photo of the whole team and the twins to post.
Hope everyone had a happy and green Irish food filled St. Paddy's Day!
Daddy, I love and miss you. Hope you had a WONDERFUL birthday!!!!
