Strawberry Crush Soda in a cupcake! I must admit, you couldn’t really taste the soda, though. I guess I thought I would somehow? Nevertheless, they were still super delicious, and got lots of compliments.

These cupcakes were inspired by I Heart Nap Time’s Orange Cream Cupcakes. For Valentine’s Day, I switched out the orange jello and orange soda for strawberry jello and strawberry soda.

Check out I Heart Nap Time’s lovely site (as well as tons of other sweet eats) for the recipe. The only other change I made was to nix the extract completely.

I also made the cupcake liners, but I’ll show that how-to in another post, another day. :)

What are your Valentine’s Day plans? I think I’m going to stay in, make my sweeties a treat (it’ll be on the blog this week!) and go out this weekend when we have some more time.

    These are fun yet elegant. The black (dark brown?) with the pink looks very sophisticated. I can see these at a school Valentine’s party and a fancy charity event! :-)

    Now I’m curious to see how you made the cupcake liners and of course, the cupcakes look delicious.

      Oh, yes! You just reminded me. I should get the DIY liner post on my blogging schedule so I don’t forget it!
