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!
