Mountain Dew Cupcakes

 
 
Alright, so this recipe is coming a little late. I made these little lovelies for the Super bowl. Of course, the Seahawks owned it, but the orange frosting was much better.
 
What I did was make Voltage Mountain Dew cupcakes and regular Mtn. Dew frosting for the Seahawks and Livewire frosting for the Broncos. These are super tart but very good! Really good though! Try these out!
