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.
What makes a mountain dew cake so special?
The soda adds something extra to the flavor of the cake. It soda makes it taste different than your standard cake mix. You will love the extra flavor the soda gives. It also makes the color of the cake extra special. You top this cake with a frosting made with crushed pineapple.
