I am rating this a 4 because the cake itself was very good and so moist. We did not like the topping at all and ended up scraping it off. Followed the directions to a "T". I will make the cake part again but use a different topping. Actually, the cake was so good that you do not have to use a topping at all if you do not want to.

My husband LOVES Mt. Dew so I made this for his birthday. I made it into three 8 inch round pans and added a couple of drops of green food coloring to the cake batter. When it was done it was the exact color of Mt. Dew. I also frosted it with regular Decorator Frosting I (from this site) since my husband doesn't like pineapple or coconut. This made a different layer cake that was quite good and looked nice with some icing piped around the base and top. I made the pineapple coconut frosting for the side and it tasted wonderful but would have been way too sweet on the cake. Great fun recipe! Thanks!
