Can I use soda in cupcakes?

If you want to add a little extra flavor to your cupcakes, you may wonder if soda would make a good addition to your batter. The answer is yes!

Carbonated beverages like soda can add some fun, fizzing excitement to your cupcakes and a sweet flavor that complements different types of cake flavors.

However, it’s important to remember that using soda in cupcakes may alter the texture of your cake. So, test it out with a small batch before making your grand cupcake debut.

With a little experimentation, you will surely find a soda flavor that your taste buds will love.

What happens when you overbake cupcakes?

When baking cupcakes, it is important to keep a close eye on them to prevent overbaking. Overbaking can result in dry and tough cupcakes with a burnt taste.

The longer cupcakes are in the oven, the more moisture they lose, which leads to a less desirable texture.

Additionally, the sugar and other ingredients in the cupcakes can caramelize and turn brown, giving them an unappealing appearance.

If you notice that your cupcakes are starting to turn brown or the edges are getting too crisp, it’s time to take them out of the oven.

Remember, it’s always better to underbake slightly than to overbake and ruin the final product.

This Sprite Cupcakes Recipe is so fun to make! Using soda and a box cake mix is the best!


  • 1 box of white cake mix
  • 1 ¼ cup lemon lime soda
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 4 large egg whites

Frosting Ingredients:

  • 2 sticks of softened salted butter
  • 2 tablespoons lemon jello
  • 2 tablespoons lime jello
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 3 tablespoons half and half
  • Green and yellow gel food coloring


  1. Start by preheating the oven to 350 degrees. Add the cupcake liners to a cupcake pan.
  2. Add the cake mix to a mixing bowl and mix in the soda, oil, and eggs on medium speed until mixed well.
  3. Add the cupcake batter into the liners about 2/3 full. Bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Let the cupcakes cool before frosting.
  4. Cream the butter for about 2 minutes to make the frosting until light and fluffy.
  5. Slowly mix in the powdered sugar 1 cup at a time while adding the half and half or milk a little between each cup. Mix for 1 minute until it is creamy.
  6. Evenly separate the frosting into two mixing bowls. In one bowl, add the lemon jello and yellow food coloring and in the other bowl add the lime jello and green food coloring.
  7. Fill one of the piping bags with the yellow frosting and one with the green.
  8. Put the two small piping bags into a larger piping bag and then squeeze out a bit so that the frosting is flowing.
  9. Frost the cupcakes.
