Do you want extract or the actual syrup?

Is it a genuine extract type liquid or the syrup restaurants use for making coca-cola drinks?

If it is the latter could you get some from McDonalds or somewhere else that has it?

It's not specifically coca-cola, but several companies make generic cola extract. For example:
http://www.amazon.com/dp/B002ABA566/?tag=cakecentral-20

If you want the specific coca-cola flavoring you'll need to actually use some coca-cola in the recipe (either soda or syrup) since they don't make an extract based on their proprietary formula.

A 16 oz container of canned frosting typically has 1500-2000 calories, so that seems about right.

But it said "Per Serving". Hopefully that's incorrect.

It looks like the person who submitted the recipe set the serving size at about 16oz, which obviously doesn't make sense if you are eating the frosting alone. The author probably interpreted one "serving" to mean enough to frost a cake.
