This weekend it was my friend Matt's birthday - you have guessed it he loves mountain dew! I had got him mountain dew gifts and though cupcakes would finish it off perfectly. I made my normal cake mix and added about a cup of mountain dew and some lemon juice (it looked a little runny so I just added a little bit of flour) I did the same with the icing, I just added mountain dew and lemon juice. They turned out fantastic and were really light and fluffy! I am not sure if it was the fizz that did it or not - I may experiment with some other fizzy drinks and see what happens!
I put citrus strands on the top - I have not seen them before and picked them up a few weeks ago and they worked perfectly!
