MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 14, 2014

I was so excited to make this cake. It was definitely moist and I had no problems with the glaze (you can't use Diet Coke for this recipe--need the sugar for reduction). The family loved it but I personally did not care for the overpowering cinnamon taste. I will definitely make it again but leave out the cinnamon.

MY REVIEW

My husband loved this cake. I followed the recipe exactly, although I probably could have reduced the liquid farther before adding the confectioner's sugar. I think it is just meant to be super moist. My only regret is that I didn't have vanilla ice cream available when it was still warm.

This cake has a wonderful flavor, but I goofed! When making the glaze, my kids distracted me, and I didn't reduce the coke before adding the confectioner's sugar! I couldn't understand why it was so runny, but crossed my fingers and hoped it would harden up a little. It didn't, and is EXTREMELY moist, but I think I may be able to salvage it somehow. Will definitely make it again!

MY REVIEW

I am from Canada and was curious to taste "Cola Cake". So I decide to make it today (but with Diet). I just cut from 12 to 9 onces for the glaze because a lot said that it was runny and by cutting a bit of cola it was just PERFECT. It taste really, really good! But it is very sweet, a small piece is enough. A keepeer, definitively!
