2 ingredients – orange creamsicle cupcakes

on

I hope everyone who celebrates Easter thoroughly enjoyed it. I on the other hand missed out sorely on Easter for baseball games in Montreal. LO has taken to batting practice and gets a ball every time we go. OH likes this very much.

Today’s post is very simple and very delicious.

This is what we are making!

I got the ingredients on a whim at the Dollar Tree. All you need is yellow cake mix ($1.25) and a can of orange soda ($0.31).

Seriously, that’s all you need. When I originally made these, I thought they were going to be sickeningly sweet, but they are so creamy, a little dense, and very tasty with a light chocolate icing.

First turn the oven to 350 degrees fareinheit. Then open the yellow cake mix  into a bowl and slowly add the about 3/4 of the can of soda.

PSA – DO NOT ADD ANY OTHER INGREDIENTS INTO THIS!

Mix the batter, which will fizz and bubble a bit, until all chunks are gone and the batter is smooth. Pour the batter into cupcake tin (with liners – paper or silicone). It will feel heavy.

Pop these suckers into the oven for 15 minutes. Test with a toothpick and if it comes out clean, then take it out. When the cupcakes are cooled, ice them. I used my butter cream icing recipe and iced them with a chocolate icing (I made half the batch very light and the other half darker to marry the chocolate flavours). Embellish them if you wish with sprinkles or treats!

 

Look at the little piggy and chick sprinkles!

These were easy and fun to make. They went over well at work and with OH! My parents loved them as well!
