MOUNTAIN DEW CUPCAKES

A friend sent me this recipe today. I have not yet tried it but I intend to do so soon as Mountain Dew is my grandson's favorite beverage. I know he will love these cupcakes.

CAKE
• 1 (18 ounce) box lemon cake mix
• 1 (3 1/2 ounce) box lemon pudding mix
• 4 eggs
• 1 1/4 cups Mountain Dew soda
• 1/2 cup vegetable oil
• 3 -5 drops yellow food coloring
FROSTING
• 4 cups confectioner’s sugar
• 1 cup salted butter(room temp)
• 1/8 cup Mountain Dew soda
• 1/2 tablespoon lemon juice
• 1/2 tablespoon lime juice
• 3 -5 drops neon green food coloring
Directions:
1 Mix cake mix, pudding and eggs well.
2 Add in your oil to the batter and mix for 2 minutes.
3 Slowly pour in your mountain dew soda and mix for another minute.
4 Add to cupcake liners and bake at 350 degrees F for 13-17 minutes (or until toothpick inserted comes out clean).
5 Allow time to cool before frosting.
6 To make frosting, beat your butter well till smooth, slowly add in 1 cup at a time of confectioners sugar and your lemon juice & mountain dew.
7 Add all of your sugar and check for thickness of the frosting. If it is too thick add a teaspoon at a time of mountain dew till you reach the correct consistency to pipe or frost your cupcakes.
