In a large bowl, with an electric mixer on low speed, mix the butter, flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda, vanilla, eggs and buttermilk together for 1 minute. Add the Coca Cola and marshmallows and blend well. Bake at 350 degrees F for 45 minutes and cool.
For the icing: In a small mixing bowl, mix the butter, cocoa, Coca Cola and confectioners sugar together. Beat until the icing is smooth and add the pecans. Frost the cake and serve.

Hi Fellow CT person, did you know you can buy that cake at Cracker Barrell? (11/18/2008)
I gather you might be looking for the truly old fashioned coca cola cake recipe not the ever-popular one that calls for buttermilk and marshmallows. To me that one is nothing more than a Texas Sheet Cake or what my mother-in-law calls Cookie Cake. Here is one that reminds me of the kind my mother used to make when I was a kid.

Bake in greased, oblong pan, approximately 9x13 inches, for 30 minutes.
