Dublin Dr Pepper Cake & Frosting Mix
Our favorite sweet treat – Dublin Dr Pepper Cake and frosting, made especially for us by Debbie’s Specialties of Dublin. The chocolate cake mix makes a sheet cake or two round layers. Just whisk it together, bake, then top it with yummy Debbie’s frosting mix. The cake mix requires 8 oz. of Dublin Dr Pepper and the frosting requires 4 oz. you get both cake mix and frosting mix for one great price!
