Coke Cake

This just might be even Better than Cracker Barrel's Version! You have to try it!
Coke Cake-Cracker Barrel Style
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups granulated sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup butter
1 cup cola, beverage
5 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup buttermilk
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
First Frosting
7 ounces marshmallow cream
Second Frosting
1/2 cup butter
3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
9 tablespoons cola, this should be the remaining cola left in a 12oz can
1 teaspoon vanilla
4 cups confectioners' sugar
1 Cake:.
2 Preheat oven to 350°F.
3 Spray a 9x13 glass pan with nonstick spray.
4 Combine flour, granulated sugar and baking soda in mixing bowl.
5 In a small saucepan, heat 1 cup butter, 5 tablespoons cocoa and 1 cup cola beverage to boiling. (whisk together as it melts).
6 Pour over the flour mixture and mix thoroughly. I just use a whisk for this because it comes together so easily.
7 Add buttermilk, eggs and vanilla. Mix well.
8 Pour into prepared 9x13 pan.
9 Bake for 40 minutes.
10 During last 10 minutes of baking prepare frosting.
11 Prepare Second Frosting:.
12 Place 5 cups confectioners' sugar in a mixing bowl.
13 In a small saucepan, combine 1/2 cup butter, 3 tablespoons cocoa powder and 9 tablespoons cola beverage. Whisk together. Heat to boiling.
14 Remove from heat, stir in 1 teaspoon vanilla.
15 Pour over 4 cups confectioners' sugar.
16 Mix well with a whisk.
17 Assembly:.
18 Remove cake from oven.
19 Immediately frost with marshmallow cream. Go slow. This will prevent tearing the cake. As the fluff warms a bit it will spread easily.
20 Slowly pour warm coco-cola frosting over marshmallow fluff.
21 It's best to let this cake cool for about an hour before cutting into it.
