    Mountain Dew And Doritos Cupcakes

    Plus Coke and Ruffles cupcakes. Chef John Rivers of the 4Rivers Sweetshop is a certifiable genius.

    Mountain Dew And Doritos

    "The key secret to using soda in cakes is to create a syrup out of it; boil it and reduce to about 25 to 30 percent, until it’s nice and thick – you can use that in place of some of other liquid in the batter recipe. You can also use it in the icing, but you only need a little bit; otherwise it will become runny."

    Coke And Ruffles

    "You can use potato chips in the batter and they will turn out fine when baked, but chips like Doritos should be reserved for a topping, as they turn black when baked."
