I won this cake at a fund-raising auction at my husband's school. It was soooo yummy and rich! The mom who made it gave me the recipe, too, with the following note:

"The success of this cake is while you are baking and mixing, you need to sip on a classic coke. Then after the cake is cooled (and after licking the topping kettle clean) you sit down with a large glass of cold milk and eat a piece of cake - ahhh!! If you ever need testers, call me!"
