3 tablespoons cocoa
2 1/2 to 3 cups of powdered sugar

Heat, but do not boil, the 1 cup of butter and 1 cup of Dr Pepper until the butter melts.
Sift together the 2 cups of flour, 1/2 tablespoon of salt, 2 cups of sugar, 4 tablespoons of cocoa, and 1-1/2 teaspoons of cinnamon together to form the dry mixture.

Add the hot Dr Pepper mixture to the dry mixture and blend well. Mix in the egg mixture and then pour into a sheet cake pan 15 1/2" x 10 1/2x1". Bake at 350° for 25 minutes. Begin work on the frosting around 5 minutes before the cake is done.
