Cherry Cola Cupcakes

Today I want to share these  delicious Cherry Cola Cupcakes!cherry cola cupcakes

My Oh My!

To say that I am a cola lover is putting it mildly.  

So…these cupcakes “take the cake” so to speak!

cherry cola cupcakes Took a recipe and put my own spin on it.  

Because I did not have a cola extract and could not find it at my local grocery store, I made up my own recipe!  

Adding cherry cola to the cake made it a moist, yummy cake!  

This is kind of like my Weight Watchers cake, but Not…

because this is loaded with calories with the buttercream frosting!  

That is what makes them so delicious!  :)

  1. 1 white cake mix
  2. 1 box instant vanilla pudding
  3. 1 cup cherry cola
  4. 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  5. 1 cup sour cream- I used light
  6. 1 tablespoon vanilla
  7. 4 eggs
Cherry Buttercream Frosting
  1. 1 cup butter softened
  2. 3-5 cups powdered sugar
  3. 4-6 tablespoons maraschino cherry juice (flavor to taste)
  4. maraschino cherries to decorate
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Put paper liners in 24 cupcake tins.
  3. Mix all cake ingredients together until smooth. Spoon cake batter into the paper liners. I used an ice cream scoop to get the batter even. Bake for approximately 18 minutes. Check with a toothpick in the center of cupcake. If it comes out clean the cupcakes are done. Allow to cool completely before frosting.
  4. Cherry Buttercream Frosting
  5. Whip butter until smooth and creamy. Add powdered sugar one cup at a time. Add the maraschino cherry juice until the consistency you want. You will want the frosting a little on the thick side. Pipe frosting onto cooled cupcakes. Add a cherry on top and a fun straw cut in half! Enjoy!
