      Love Dr. Pepper! I just recently became aware of making cakes with soda and think it's a great idea. Haven't had a chance to try it yet (need to shed those holiday pounds before making new desserts), but putting this one on the list. Thanks!

      Hey, these look great! I'm from Australia and I've got a question. When you say a 'C of Dr Pepper', what measurement is that? A can? Cheers

      I think Dr Pepper is under rated here in the UK- these look great!
