Alli - Pop ! Yep pop them right into your mouth! Delicious cupcake - so very moist and tender. I made a homemade buttercream frosting for these this time and last night served with a few sliced strawberries on top (but of course by the time of photos this morning the strawberries were gone). I made 12 in heart shaped tins and received 10 in regular sized muffin pan (the hearts were a bit larger than a normal muffin tin). The flavor of the soda does not really appear within the cupcake but the appearance is so beautiful and serving with strawberries brings it all together. Made for your win in Tic Tac Toe 2011 event.
These are AWESOME! I just tested this recipe to see if I wanted to make them for my DS's Valentine's Day party next week, and we both agreed they were perfect. I made it exactly as directed but used storebought red sprinkles. The cake part is so tender and light. I think for the party I'll go the extra mile and make homemade cream cheese frosting (Kittencal's recipe), but the recipe is wonderful as is. Thanks for a keeper that I'll be sure to use again and again. :-)
Loved these cupcakes! I made these more of a dessert - I mixed some low-fat cream cheese with some marshmallow creme, put a scoop on top of the cupcakes, and put some strawberry slices on that. The strawberry soda really gave these a sweet fruity flavor and they were so moist. Thanks for sharing your recipe! Made for ZWT6, Zwizzle Chicks
These were great!! I love the subtle strawberry flavor from the pop!! Even DH liked these and he's not one for strawberry flavored anything! I didn't have red food coloring so my frosting was white and I just had rainbow sprinkles so I didn't follow the recipe exactly but they still tasted delicious!!! Very moist and tasty and the cupcakes were such a pretty pink color!! Made for your Football Pool Win Wildcard Playoff Week...congrats!!! :)
These were so easy to make and very moist. I made them for a club potluck and everyone thought they were great. Will make them again for "think Pink" month.
These are delightful and so easy peasy! Made as directed, only my sprinkles were already pink so I could skip a step! :) Thanks, alligirl! Made for my PAC Fall 2009 co-host.
