Who knew Mountain Dew could turn an ordinary cake into something extra special?
Growing up we would often have huge ice cream socials during the summer. These ice cream socials involved lots of extended family members at my grandparent’s house. They would make 3 or 4 gallons of ice cream together, and my grandmother would make a few cakes to go along with the ice cream.
