This is just for the cola icing. I was getting ready to add my college friend's mother's cola icing when I found yours here. I didn't add the nuts when I made the icing. It is really tasty...just a notch above plain chocolate icing!

I have fixed this cake twice now and it disappears very fast. I didn't get the recipe from here... my sister has a cookbook with it in it. But the ingediants are pretty much the same. It's the best, most moist cake I've ever eaten and since I substitute buttermilk, con. sugar, and butter with fat-free buttermilk, light con. sugar, and light butter it's a lot healther than a store-bought cake. That's the good thing about making a cake from scratch... you can make it the way you want it. Thanks so much for this recipe... it's delicious!!

This cake was ok, it was a bit dense for our taste. The frosting however was AMAZING! I was trying to recreate the Cracker Barrel cake and this just wasn't it, but I swear the BEST hot fudge chocolate frosting I have ever had!
