College football is over, but we still have the NFL to watch! Thank goodness!! This Jack and Coke Cake is perfect for watching football. It takes one of our favorite drink combinations and puts it in cake form. YUM! There is Jack Daniel's and Coke in the cake and in the frosting. The flavor of the Jack Daniel's isn't overwhelming. It is very subtle; you can certainly add more if you want a stronger whiskey flavor.

We loved this cake. What's not to love? Chocolate, peanuts, Jack Daniel's and Coca-Cola. This cake is great warm or at room temperature. Add a big ol' scoop of vanilla ice cream to really put this cake over the top! You can make this cake a few days in advance - it will keep several days covered.
