Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

We LOVE this cake I make it all the time. I highly recommend!

Can we use Diet Cherry Coke also instead of just Diet Coke?

Hi there! Yes, Diet Cherry Coke can be used! Enjoy!

Step 2 does not specify if I am to use "dry cake mix" or "prepared cake mix". Please help.

Hi there! As this recipe states, you are to use dry cake mix and add the diet cola. Do not add eggs, oil or other ingredients that may be on your cake mix's box. Enjoy!
