Fudgey Coca Cola Cake

Yeah, it’s Sunday Supper time! I love when I get together with my friends and share a meal. April 22nd is Earth Day and April 23rd is National Picnic Day so we’re sharing recipes to enjoy while picnicking in the great outdoors. I love preparing picnics and loading up the picnic basket with all kinds of goodies to make the meal special.

Here are some of my tips to help make this picnic special.

1. Choose foods that travel well. There is no point to decorate cupcakes if they end up smeared all over the container you are taking them in. Choose brownies or a cake like the one I’m sharing or even some jumbo delicious cookies.

2. Hand held foods work best. A cheese and cracker try works well also. Choose cheeses that improve as they set out like brie, goat cheeses or marinated mozzarella or feta. Hard cheeses like cheddar will get sweaty if they set out so you want to avoid them.

3. Minimize the cooking, buying roasting chicken or instead of sliced tomatoes use grape or cherry tomatoes that are marinated. Wait to dress salads until right before serving.

This cake will travel well and you’re going to love how moist and fudgey the frosting is. It takes less than an hour from start to finish to make it. The batter also makes great cupcakes, so if you wanted to just put the fudgey frosting on cupcakes this will travel well.
