Dr Pepper Cake

Here are the facts:

I had grand plans to make a Dr Pepper cake for a certain cute red headed boy for his birthday.

I had these grand plans because I wanted to impress this certain boy with my ninja-like baking skills.

I found a book.  I found a recipe.  I bought Dr. Pepper.  I whipped up the batter.  I threw together the frosting.  I married the cake and frosting.

Aaaaand…

Gross.  Icky.  Yuck.  Creepy moist.  Too sweet.  Thumbs down.  Not good.  Not cute.  Not any way to celebrate a birthday.

Maybe the addition of marshmallows should have been a red flag.

Now you know the facts.  Now maybe you can help.

What’s your favorite soda pop cake recipe?  I’ve got to redeem myself.  Any suggestions?
