Mountain Dew Cupcakes

That's right.
Last night I embraced, however briefly, that most citrusy and sugary of all soda drinks.
The product that I have frequently refered to as "white trash water" ... Mountain Dew.
I stumbled upon the recipe at quirky cupcake

Now, take note, I'm not saying there is anything wrong with drinking Mountain Dew, many of those nearest and dearest to me frequently imbibe the sugary substance with some frequency. I'm just not a huge fan.
I'm also not ashamed to admit that the little citrus sugar bombs didn't go over as well as their namesake. Oh, people ate them, but I will say once more, that my co-workers aren't the most discerning lot when it comes to their tastebuds. For the record the cake part was pretty tasty, but I think the icing was just a little too Mountain Dew/Lemon/Limey for the crowd around here. The recipe does involve lemon zest, lime zest, lemon juice, lime juice, lemon extract and Mountain Dew. So that much citrus related flavor could get to anyone.

Sara here was a good sport. Choking down some more of the radioactive green frosting just so I could take a photo. And doing that even in her current extremely sickly state. Thanks Sara! You're a pal!
What kinda cupcakes do you want?

WOW! Get your pucker on! :-) They actually were pretty good, you just can't eat too many or they will be pulling you off the ceiling. Cake part wasn't overly sweet...but that icing, what a kick!

i think there were more chemicals in those cupcakes than mountain dew because i could not stop eating those. the radioactive frosting was the best part, and i usually scrape off heavy frostings.
