My nephew's only request was that I make the cake taste like Mountain Dew. So, I went one step further and made the cake look like a Mountain Dew can.
I started with a lemon flavored cake mix then replaced the liquids with Mountain Dew. I also added some extra lemon flavor and Soda Stream "Mountain Dew" flavor to my buttercream. I colored fondant to match the colors in the can. I then cut out the different designs on the logo. For the ends, I made gray fondant and then put silver luster dust mixed with vodka on the ends to make it look like a real can. I lightly airbrushed the whole cake to make it look metallic. I added green colored food gel to make it look like the can had spilt. Here is the result.
