I wanted to make this because of my boyfriend and one of our very nice mutual friends, Doug (Mod), who are basically Mountain Dew addicts. Soda cakes perplexed me at first, but they turn out to be very yummy. Doug claimed if I started making this, he'd lock me in his basement doomed to make cakes forever and that my boyfriend would never see me again! This recipe is very Mountian Dew-yum! Nicknamed the Really Cool Dew Cake (RCDC). I don't like many other recipes of this simply because they have a lot of lemon or pineapple or coconut and it detracts from the Mountain Dew...which of course is the main point for my boys. It even has a Mountian Dew glaze.. If you'd rather ice (or do both!), that's okay too. See my Pineapple icing recipe (#187414) for that!
