Orange soda cupcakes

5 Feb

I saw on quite a few blogs that you could mix a box of cake mix with a can of soda and make a cake. I figured it would be the perfect recipe to try with the Babycakes cupcake maker that J got me for Christmas.

Yes, J got me a Babycakes. When I first heard about them I thought they were silly, but then the more I thought about what I could make with them…the more I needed one. I’ve actually made a bunch of things with it – quiche, mini pies, lots of cupcakes, mini pancakes, muffins…



I mixed a can of orange soda with a box of funfetti cake mix. I then plugged in the Babycakes and waited for it to warm up. It took about 5 minutes we batch and I made a bunch. The result was a whole bunch of moist and very yummy mini cupcakes.


In a couple of them, I used another trick I found on the internets – cook the cupcakes for a few minutes and then drop in a Hershey kiss. I only did it with a couple of them in case it didn’t turn out good. I should’ve done it with all of them, next time…

      Is it the Babycakes or the use of a can of soda in cooking? 🙂
