Cherry Chocolate Dr. Pepper Cupcakes

My coworker Apryle invented these, and I promised I would make them for her.

This is a soda cake.

I made soda cupcakes once before (Orange Soda Cupcakes), so I was excited to try a new flavor combo.

Chocolate Fudge Cake + a can of Dr. Pepper. That’s it! (Literally – no eggs, water, oil, anything. Just a can of soda.)

Bake em up for 18-20 min at 350*.

For the Cherry Frosting:

1 lb powdered sugar

1 stick (1/2 cup) salted butter

3 tbsp milk

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 tsp cherry extract

red food coloring

Mix all ingredients until smooth and fluffy. Pipe or spread onto cupcakes.

My brother’s review of Apryle’s cupcake:

“The cherry is almost too overwhelming, but it works with the chocolate cupcake. The Dr. Pepper taste is subtle but it’s definitely there.”

….and Apryle’s review:

“The cherry is really sweet and the Dr. Pepper is subtle, but it was really good!”
