Nothing screams FUN like a gassy distraction.

With the stress of school looming over my head, I decided that I needed to take a mental getaway.
Destination: Cake Land.

With the help of my fearless sidekick, who has enough power in his arms to out mix anyone, I decided to try out a cake recipe that called for... 

Yes, you read it correctly. 

I added a fizzy, carbonated drink into CAKE MIX and PUDDING MIX. 

So simple and stress-free... 

I wish my exams were this straight forward.

I didn't follow the recipe exactly (of course...) because my pudding box was 136g. I realized something was fishy when I poked my toothpick into the cake and it was anything but solid. 
I had a very gooey mixture. 
Apparently, 136g is not 3 oz. and I actually added 1 cup of Sprite, instead of 236.5882375ml (8 oz).
Oops. My bad. I just ended up baking the cake for 5 minutes longer.

Other than being in the oven a little longer and suffering a few lacerations to his face (from being poked multiple times), Mr. Sprite Cake is in good health.

Nice and Moist.

Nothing that a little icing cover-up could not fix.

Would I use this recipe again? Maybe.
