Chocolate-Cherry Cola Cake

I wanted to make Adam a birthday cake, but didn't want something too time consuming as it was going to be a busy week, and he would get a whole big cake this weekend.

I saw this recipe in a link a friend sent me, and it looked simple, and tasty.

These has great flavor! The cake is super moist and yummy and the frosting just adds a touch. I made this into cupcakes.

Happy Birthday Adam!

Chocolate-Cherry Cola Cake (From: Betty Crocker Birthday Parties Cookbook)
