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.

This cake was ok. I was a little disappointed. I however loved the topping, it took a little bit to make it but I will use that part of the recipe again...with what I am not sure.

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!

I made this cake for my husband to take to work.Everyone loved it!It is very lemony and refreshing on a hot day.I flipped it out in a carrier and let the topping roll down the sides.Then, I sprinkled with chopped pecans and placed a cherry on top.It looked Great!Thanks for sharing.

I made this today for my husband, who loves Mountain Dew anything. I changed it a bit to reflect what I had on hand. I didn't have a lemon cake mix, so I used a yellow cake mix with pudding. I also added a tsp. of vanilla flavoring in with the cake mixture. When the cake was baked, I poked holes in the hot cake with the handle of my wooden spoon and poured the hot pineapple/coconut mixture over the cake, then cooled it in the fridge. When the cake was cooled, I frosted it with a container of whipped topping and sprinkled toasted coconut on top. (Almost like a Better than Sex cake.) Simple enough, but a really wet base cake. If I were to make this again, I wouldn't add a whole cup of vegetable oil. That seemed a bit excessive. I might cut it back to a half cup. Still, very good recipe for a cake. You can't tell that it's got Mountain Dew in it, but it's still very good. I think I might put a bit of lemon juice in the cake part next time, to make it more lemon-y.

This cake is so delicious it's worth cheating on my diet for a small 2-inch square! I took it to a church gathering and to work - was a huge hit both times! I'm going to experiment next time and use sugar free pudding and diet Mt. Dew. (Not a lot of calorie savings - sorta like having a banana split and leaving off the whipped cream!)
