My mother-in-law, Carol Deibel, created this recipe because she needed to have a cake to take to a funeral and had a cake recipe for a Coca-Cola cake and she didn't have any Coke in the house, but did have 7-up. She she modified the cake recipe, made it and everyone like it more than her intended cake!
