I am a novice writer and painter who loves to be creative. I love singing but can't sing without a hymnal, except for children's songs. I love to make up my own songs and love the old hymns. I love to garden and got that love from my Mom and Dad who taught be everything I know from planting to harvesting to canning. I'm happy gardening, walking with my pug, JD Sir Winston Churchill, painting, and crafting. I love to spend Saturday's sitting in my rocker going through a bible study. I love working with elementary school aged children and seeing them use their creative gifts. I have taught Sunday school for a number of years and taught in the public schools for 18 years. I might say I'm retired but I spend most of my time subbing and enjoy it immensely. The kids spark my own creativeness.

  1. WHOA! The frosting alone would work for me it looks so good. HUM! the more I look at the cake with marshmallows, buttermilk, etc. I need the package. I have never had a Coco-Cola cake but can’t wait to try. Thanks,

  2. Looks like a good cake and I do like chocolate. Do you cream the butter and then add sugar, coke, etc to the frosting?

  3. Sounds divine! i guess you could say that with this recipe….

    “You can really have your COKE and eat it ,too!!” 🙂

  4. It sounds delicious of course it doesn’t have any calories in it. I always remember the coca-cola salad mom made with 1-l6 oz can crushed pineapple, 1 small pkg. cherry jello, l1 small pkg lemon jello, 1 cup celery, chopped, 1 cup nuts, chopped and 24 oz. coca-cola. Heat undrained pineapple to boiling. Remove from heat; stir in jello and pour in Coca-cola. Chill until slightly thickened. Add other ingrediantsand chill to set.

  5. Say, Connie…you & Rena sound like the Coca-cola kids! What fun to have different delights made with our favorite “PAUSE THAT REFRESHES”.
    And spiritually, we have Jesus….He IS the ‘Selah’ that refreshese the soul!

  6. Connie thank you for the coca-cola salad recipe. With our gardens about to produce, we will have to dig out all our vegetable and canning recipes.

  7. Oh Rena this sounds so great I can’t wait to try this. When I fix this delicious cake I’ll call you and we can eat this together.
