How about chocolate cake in a trifle bowl. Cut cake into 1inch bites, and layer the cake with alt layers of frosting, crushed nuts, cake, frosting, nuts. Could add berries, too.

I made this last night..

Mountain Dew Cake:
1 box lemon cake mix
1  3.4 oz box lemon pudding mix
4  eggs
1 1/4 c Mountain Dew
1/2 c orange juice
1/2 oil

Preheat oven to 325 if cooking in a bundt pan like I did. (Don't bother asking about different pans - I haven't tried yet so I don't have a clue!).  Spray and flour pan.

Combine dry cake mix with dry pudding mix. Add eggs, oil and orange juice.  Very slowly add Mtn Dew. (V-E-R-Y slowly, unless you like cake mix foam all over your counter top).  Mix at medium until blended and there are no more lumps.

Pour into bundt pan and bake 45-50 min. 

Let cake cool a bit (5 min or so) then turn onto plate or platter.  Cool a little more while making glaze.

Glaze:
1/3 cup butter
1 c sugar
1/2 c Mountain Dew
2 Tbs orange juice
Neon green food coloring (optional)
  *note: I plan to half the glaze next time I make this. It makes a lot!  But I decided to record it exactly as I made it.


In a saucepan over low heat, melt butter.  Add sugar.  Stir to incorporate. SLOWLY add Mtn Dew and orange juice.  Bring to a boil, turning up heat if needed, stirring often.  Boil for a few minutes until glaze is clear and begins to thicken to a syrup.  (At this point, I added a few drops of neon green food coloring to make it Dew colored.  It doesn't show up much on the exterior of the cake, but on the slices, it gives the edges a fun Dew-green halo)

Spoon glaze over cake .  Cool cake completely before serving.
