Cake
1
box Betty Crocker® SuperMoist® white cake mix
Water, vegetable oil and whole eggs called for on cake mix box
2
packages (0.13 oz or 0.14 oz each) lemon lime- or strawberry-flavored unsweetened soft drink mix
1/2
cup frozen lemonade or limeade concentrate, thawed
Super Sour Frosting
1
package (0.13 oz or 0.14 oz) lemon lime- or strawberry-flavored unsweetened soft drink mix
4
to 5 tablespoons frozen lemonade or limeade concentrate, thawed
3
cups powdered sugar
1/4
cup butter or margarine, softened
Sour gummi candies, if desired
  1. Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pan). Grease or spray bottom only of 13x9-inch pan. In large bowl, beat cake mix, water, oil, whole eggs, and 2 packages drink mix with electric mixer on low speed 30 seconds, then on medium speed 2 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally. Pour into pan.
  2. Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 15 minutes.
  3. Pierce top of warm cake every 1/2 inch with long-tined fork, wiping fork occasionally to reduce sticking. Drizzle 1/2 cup lemonade concentrate evenly over top of cake. Cool completely, 1 hour to 1 hour 30 minutes.
  4. In medium bowl, stir 1 package drink mix into 2 tablespoons lemonade concentrate until dissolved. Beat in powdered sugar and butter on low speed. Gradually beat in enough of the remaining 2 to 3 tablespoons lemonade concentrate, 1 teaspoon at a time, to make frosting smooth and spreadable. Spread frosting over top of cake. Cut into serving pieces. Decorate with sour candies. Store loosely covered.
