Coca Cola Cake
Makes one 4 layer cake
Adapted from a couple different online sources...

2 cups sugar
2 cups flour
1 1/2 cups mini marshmallows
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
1 /2 cup vegetable oil
3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
1 cup Coca Cola
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup buttermilk
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
tablespoons Coca Cola
1 (16 ounce) box confectioners' sugar
teaspoon vanilla

Preheat oven to 350*. In a bowl, sift together sugar and flour. Add marshmallows. In a saucepan, mix butter, oil, cocoa and Coke. Bring to a boil, pour over dry ingredients, and blend well. Dissolve baking soda in buttermilk just before adding to batter along with eggs and vanilla extract, mixing well. Pour into two greased 8 inch round pans and bake 25 to 30 minutes. Remove from oven, let cool, and divide each cake into 2 layers.
While the cakes are cooling, combine butter, cocoa and Coke in a saucepan. Bring to a boil and pour over confectioners sugar, blending well. Add vanilla and beat until creamy.  
Frost each layer and put lots of top!  And enjoy with ice cream :)
