If you are wondering how long this cake will last, I would say it depends on the temperature of your fridge.

If it is cold in your fridge, you may want to make this recipe 3-4 days before eating. Otherwise, the batter should be in an airtight container for up to a week or two.

Can I Use Regular Food Coloring?

You can use regular food coloring, but I decided to use the kids’ rainbow Mountain Dew for a fun color scheme. Using a 1/4 teaspoon packet of icing is plenty to add all the colors to achieve this.

Can I Use Any Flavor Of Mtn Dew?

Yes, you can use any flavor of Mtn Dew, but make sure you adjust the amount of sugar accordingly. You may want to reduce the sugar if you use a less sweet soda.

You can use any toppings you’d like! I recommend a raspberry drizzle, whipped cream, and an Oreo cookie.
