I found a recipe for Mountain Dew cupcakes at nothingbutcountry.com, so I obviously HAD to make them.
They turned out a little too lemon-y for me. The recipe calls for lemon cake mix AND lemon pudding mix, so I think next time I will leave out the pudding mix. But I still thought they were pretty delicious....
I did think the frosting tasted AMAZING, you can taste the Mountain Dew more in the frosting than in the actual cupcake.
And I put green and yellow dye in the bag, to get the stripes in the white frosting! I only did 2 stripes, instead of 4 like the website originally showed. I think these were the first cupcakes that I didn't even use sprinkles on! YUMM
If you like Mountain Dew and lemon flavoring, you definitely need to try these cupcakes! Next up: Orange Crush cupcakes!! (or possibly S'more, we'll see)
