Cola Cakes: Your recommendations?

Hi, my son's birthday is Sunday, and I would like to make him a cola (Coke, Pepsi, Dr P, whatever) -based cake (it's sort of a joke - he won't drink soda, even though he enjoys the taste of it...it's the caffeine he can do without). Now, I have seen cola cake recipes around, but would like to rely on the experts (you) to give me an outstanding recipe *with* homemade frosting...something that will dazzle him.

He's 17 and will eat anything, so fire away! Thanks for your help!

    Just a suggestion - why not make him a cake he really likes but serve him a big roll full of sliced Coca-Cola brisket?

    COCA-COLA BRISKET

    4 or 5 lb. trimmed beef brisket
    1 bottle chili sauce
    3/ 4 cup water
    1 (12 oz.) can Coca-Cola (NOT diet Coke, Pepsi, etc.-just regular Coke)
    1 package dry onion soup mix

    Combine all ingredients except brisket in a roasting pan to fit brisket with not too much room left over. Add brisket and turn to coat with sauce. Cover very tightly with foil. Bake at 325 degrees for 4 or 5 hours. Slice meat across the grain and serve with sauce.

    (I like to remove the brisket from the sauce and chill the two separately overnight. Next day remove any fat clumps from the top of the sauce. Reheat slowly, adding a little more water if needed. Slice the beef and add to the sauce and heat.)

    I made a 7 up cake that was really good. I also have a recipe for a Sun Drop cake at home. If you can't get Sun Drop, Mountain Dew would do. My mother in law makes barbecue chicken using the basics for barbeque sauce and adds a cup of Coca Cola to it. You just cut down on the other liquids that you normally add. My daughter doesn't drink sodas either. Its mostly water and sometimes iced tea with her meals. She never even drank sodas during her teen years.

    If you really want to floor him, make him an entire Coca Cola meal:
    French onion soup
    Coca Cola cherry salad
    Beef brisket OR Coca Cola roast
    Sweet-sour cabbage OR Steak fried onions
    Glory muffins
    Cola cake

    All the recipes contain Coke and are at: http://www2.coca-cola.com/heritage/recipes.html
