Ingredients

  • 1 box White Cake Mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1 1/4 cups Mountain Dew
  • 3-5 tablespoons Lime Jell-O
  • 3 drops yellow dye optional
  • 1/4 teaspoon lemon extract or lemon juice

Mountain Dew Buttercream Frosting

  • 1 cup butter softened
  • 1/3 cup Mountain Dew
  • 1-3 tablespoons Lime Jello mix
  • 1 - 2 tablespoons cream or milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon lemon extract
  • Optional: 2-3 drops yellow dye
  • Lucky charms and sprinkles
  • 3 1/2 - 4 cups Powdered sugar

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees, Line a muffin tin with liners.
  • Mix up cake mix with all the ingredients mentioned and bake cupcakes according to directions on box.
  • Do not overfill, about 2/3 full should be good. (Even if you do, it's ok!)
  • Bake for 15 minutes, watch them carefully, these burn easily. Use a toothpick to test for doneness.

Mountain Dew Buttercream Frosting

  • Beat butter till creamy and smooth.
  • Add in powdered sugar, 1 cup at a time, making sure to combine completely.
  • Once all the powdered sugar is combined, add the remainder of the ingredients and beat well.
  • Frost cooled cupcakes either with a filled pastry bag with a round tip, or snip a hole out of a ziplock bag and pipe onto the cupcakes.
  • Add some lucky charms and sprinkles!
  • So good!

Notes

I think you could try a lemon cake mix, omit the lemon extract or juice if you do, with the exception of the frosting, leave it in there!
