Soda Can Cupcakes

These crazy simple Soda Can Cupcakes involve only a can of soda and a box of cake mix! It’s magic!

I am all about a shortcut and these cupcakes are the epitome of shortcuts!!

I while back I made this cake. It had 2 ingredients and was really delicious…So we’re gonna do that again today.  All you need are 2 things…cake mix and a can of soda.

Seriously!

MY OTHER RECIPES

Why in the world would I ever use eggs and oil again?

I saw this idea on Pinterest, but apparently I forgot to Pin it and searching again and again I couldn’t find the source…but I did a quick google search and found that it’s all over, so I don’t feel so bad.

Soda Can Cupcakes.

Here’s what you need….

I used Funfetti and Cranberry Splash Sierra Mist.  It made the cupcakes a pretty pink color.  You couldn’t really taste the cranberry or the Sierra Mist at all.  Maybe a stronger flavor soda would give more flavor.  BUT it tasted like Funfetti cake, and that’s good with me!

**I know you are going to ask this…I don’t know if this works with diet soda.  Well, I am sure it works, BUT after a few quick searches I saw some sites saying it is dangerous to heat up artificial sweeteners…So I don’t know.  I mean, if I believed everything on the internet I would be transferring all my dollars into a Nigerian Bank account, chain emailing all my friends so I will have good luck and never drinking pop rocks with soda, which is actually fun and tasty.  So with that said, I am not a scientist, I do not know if you will die a slow, painful death if you bake with diet coke…but I do know I am certainly not the person you should be asking about healthy food alternatives…so use your best discretion.

 

Here’s all you do…

Pour a can of soda into your dry cake mix.  Use room temperature soda please.

Using a whisk, mix your cake mix and soda until most of the lumps are gone.

I will look like this…

Fill your lined muffin tins about 1/2 – 2/3 full of batter.  You won’t get 24 cupcakes like you would if you followed the instructions.  I got about 17.  The batter is a slightly thicker than regular cake mix batter.

After you’ve baked them you can see the texture…yum!

And now decorate them however you would like.  I made a batch of buttercream and played around a bit.

Cute cupcakes always taste better, I’m pretty sure of it.

  1. Well as far as I can tell, you’re still a pretty good person. I mean, it’s not as though you’re scarfing down funnel cakes in front of starving children or anything.

    But this is coming from someone who laughs when her son trips and falls, so….

    (also, you can totally die from cooking diet soda, I would know. I’m actually a ghost)

    1. Laurie

      I’ve heard there’s no such thing as an ugly cupcake. I tend to agree (especially since my piping skills leave much to be desired) and they all still disappeared.

  2. I saw this on pinterest too, and I also did not pin it! So I’m glad you posted this to remind me of it.

    I also laugh at the person in the bathroom who is having tummy troubles, you can tell that they are just dying waiting for someone to flush a toilet so no one will hear them. Poor tummy troubled person 🙁

    1. I was in a stall next to a woman (I hope) who was making some really disgusting noises. I didn’t laugh at her; I just got out of the bathroom as fast as I could. I exited the building, went down the sidewalk outside the windows of the bathroom and heard a voice yelling, You didn’t wash your hands!

  3. LB

    Just thought I’d let you know, I’ve done these with diet cream soda and diet orange soda (didn’t have any regular) and they were both FANtastic. 🙂

  4. Sweet Treats

    These are great cakes for anyone on Weight Watchers. Using diet soda works just as well and the only thing you need to “count” is the cake mix. Combinations are endless. Yum!

    1. Marie M.C.

      What does it taste like? Does it taste like the usual cake mix cake? I grew up eating cake mix cakes and quite like them. Just curious.

  5. Cara W

    Tupperware uses this recipe as one of their demos, but they don’t make it as cupcakes (it is cooked in the microwave in one of their products). I have made it several times with a chocolate cake and Coke Zero (all I had on hand). It is also really good with chocolate cake mix and cherry cola. I look forward to trying this actually baked in the oven.

  6. Livvy Schwartz

    Well, you’re in good d-bag company it seems! I too find all of those things mentioned above, HILARIOUS! If we ever meet in a public restroom, and I have the padoodles, I’ll be sure to laugh right along with you!

    Can’t wait to try these cupcakes!

  7. jen b

    I just recently found your blog & after your d-bag, jerk post tonight????

    I knew I liked you!!! =)

    We’re trying those cupcakes next weekend!

  8. i’ve been meaning to try this forever but have never gotten around to it. Maybe I will now.

    I have a “friend;” who totally CAN NOT handle people falling. She can’t help but laughing openly and VERY loudly at them. Which in turn makes me laugh and then the person who fell is more than mortified.

  9. I have made cakes in this fashion before and they always taste great! I have usually used fat free cool whip to keep things a little healthier, but a good buttercream never hurt anyone 🙂

  10. Lisa L.

    You and Kristan have given me the two best ideas ever for my son’s b-day party!!! Thank you!! And I am quite sure we would get along. I think people falling is rather funny too… I laugh at my two kiddos all the time when they fall!

  11. hillary

    pinning these!!! you sound like my 15 yr old! he laughs and then we all laugh and it shouldn’t be funny but it is! hope you’ve seen Jack & Jill! you’ll be laughing like a fool!

  12. Jen Kim

    Ooh~ I definitely have to try this recipe and Cookbook Queen’s Cherry Vanilla Dr. Pepper Cupcake recipe~ My children are going to love me more for these treats~ lol~ Thank you for sharing~ =D

    1. Chloe

      I still make 7-up cakes. But they are not just cake mix & 7-up, it’s a from scratch recipe involving 7-up. It’s my favorite cake! But I’m definitely trying this soon!! Maybe tonight! 🙂

  13. Larissa

    I do these all the time with red velvet mix and dr. pepper. No one ever believes me when I tell them how it’s done!

    Oh and you’re totally not a jerk, you’re pretty awesome!

  14. Jane

    Not everyone is perfect and each of us has his own negative side. At least you have admitted that some of your habits are not good. That’s a good sign and that means, you are capable of changing some of those habits. And besides, your recipes are great and is a big plus for a mom like me. I’m sure your kids love your cooking. I’ll try to make some of these cupcakes for my kids.

  15. Oh, my sister had Strawberry Shortcake dolls….my favorite was Lemon Meringue. I was a little too old for them, but did my fair share of smelling hers. 😉

    These are so cute…and easy…and I LOVE that! And I’ve never seen that flavor Sierra Mist…it sounds delicious and the perfect addition to any cupcake!

  16. Roberta

    You would not be able to use diet soda as heating up the aspartame in diet soda turns into a form of wood alcohol, which is poisonous to the human body.

  17. Corrie_Alexa

    I make these type of cakes all the time…7- Up and poppy seeds with a lemon flavored cake mix is the favorite! I also do the same basic recipe with a can of pumpkin and a spice cake. 1 regular can of pumpkin puree and a spice cake mix. Easy and delicious! (and low in points if you are doing WW, which I am not! bahahaha.) My mother in-law taught me this recipe years ago. My Grammy make a German Chocolate cake mix with just a can of caramel pecan frosting in a Bundt cake pan. Fabulous also!

  18. I love Sierra Mist Cranberry Splash. I look forward to it every year. For some reason though I’ve only been able to find it at Dollar General, no where else and only in the 2 liters. Where did you find yours?

  19. I want to try this…seems there are so many varieties that can be made…and so simple which is a HUGE bonus. As for being a terrible human being…I don’t think so…people falling just happens to be funny…really funny….like laugh all by yourself funny. Just the way some of us are wired perhaps… 🙂

  20. I used to make these all the time when I did weight watchers (without the icing) and I could never taste the soda that was used…although a variation I liked was using sparking water instead of soda to cut out the calories.

  21. I did NOT know you could do this! I am seriously impressed. I love cake mix cookies, but this really knocks it out of the ballpark. Gonna try a few variations. I’d bet devil’s food with Dr. Pepper would ROCK.

  22. dawne

    you most definately can use the diet soda. weight watchers has been doing it for years and i haven’t heard of any deaths yet 😉 and they are totally yummy!

  23. I can verify that the what Cara W. says in post #6 really works! I sell Tupperware and have done this as a demo. A bunt cake cooked in the microwave in about 3 minutes. HONESTLY!

  24. I think you just changed my life! Wow! Who knew! Great post and I <3 your blog! I can't wait to try this out! I'm making your Pumpkin Dump Cake recipe tonight… so far it smells GREAT! Thanks!

  25. Anyone having intestinal issues is just funny to me as well. Down periscope and Van Wilder come to mind after reading your post. Does it make you a bad person, nope, it just means you have a sense of humor and you aren’t a fuddy duddy (I know it’s not a word). I tell anyone that walks with me, if you fall, I’m going to laugh first and then ask if you are ok.

  26. Katie

    I think the concern with artificial sweeteners is how the heat of baking will effect them. Some artificial sweeteners, like aspartame, are not heat stable, and thus will not taste the same after baking (it’s the same reason why adding Equal to your coffee works for only a short period of time. If you leave it too long in the heat, the coffee won’t taste sweet). I guess it just depends what kind of artificial sweeteners the diet soda uses. Otherwise, cheers for a fun recipe! 🙂

  27. Teneile

    I made rootbeer cupcakes using a yellow cake mix, then I made rootbeer buttercream to go on top. They were a HUGE hit! Everyone loves them. 🙂 I can’t wait to try more combinations. Oh, and I LOVE your sense of humor, you and I are a lot alike.

  28. I have made cupcakes and cakes with white cake mix and sprite zero before! And it was so delish!!! I would top with sugar free icing and it tasted amazing and didnt taste diet at all!! you should try it 🙂

  29. Justine DeBolt

    Love this! mmmm I once saw a mutual friend @ my job and she was a breastfeeding mother and had leaked, a lot. I did not say anything to her about it and I felt bad about it afterward. All my coworkers were mortified that I didn’t alert her to it. I didn’t know what to say, “Hey, you sprung a leak”. I don’t think so! LOL

  30. I am known for laughing at people who fall; I aided and abetted the nicknaming of an acquaintance, ‘Gravy’, due to the dollop left over on her chin; I cringe and snicker at bathroom noises; I too run from the mom losing control, all the while reinforcing how good a mom I am to my boys. You are not alone!! And I am now sooooo extremely happy knowing I have a room temperature can of Dr. Pepper and a triple chocolate cake mix in the pantry. Now there is dessert for our King Ranch chicken casserole!! Maybe this will be a new Wednesday theme – mid-week dessert!!

  31. Kara

    My mom did this with chocolate cake and cherry coke. We could taste that it was different and I certainly don’t like it. Eggs and oil any day please!

  32. Angela

    I totally loose it when I hear someone talking and they have a lisp. I have had to excuse myself on several occasions because I have, in the past, laughed in peoples faces who have had speech impediments. Can’t help it, I just explode with laughter over speech problems.

  33. Pam

    Thanks for the giggle today. I really needed that. Any I must admit, it was funnier because I also have that evil side within and laughing when I’m nervous or when something is absolutely is not supposed to be funny is what gets me through this crazy life! Thanks again.

  34. soda can cupcakes-my family did not like these cupcakes. They tended to fall apart easily and were too light and airy-didnt seem to have the flavor. I will go back to my usual way of making cupcakes adding pudding.

  35. Was looking through my recipes on Pinterest for something sweet. Ran across this one and thought it would be perfect for our weekly sweet thing. I’ve got it in the oven (as a whole cake) now. I used a lemon supreme cake mix and sprite zero. Looks and smells great. I’m sure it’ll taste as good. My Weight Watchers leader does a very similar one, but she uses more ingredients. Thanks for giving me the ease of use and all the flavor!

  36. Heather

    I tried this several years ago with diet cherry 7up and no frosting, I was on weight watchers at the time (the mini cupcakes were only 1 point a piece). I’m still alive, oh and they were delicious too! 🙂

  37. It is really funny that you posted the note about diet soda. I got a recipe from weight watchers years ago for choc cake mix with diet cherry coke and mini choc chips. It also had egg beaters which I always found a little strange but I am totally going to try it with just the soda. I love that it changed the color of the cake without adding food color. Do you think that it would work with flat soda? I am frequently left with soda after my husband is done drinking it because it really isn’t fizzy enough but I wasn’t sure if it would work or if the carbonation is what makes it work.

    1. shelly

      I think the carbonation has something to do with it…BUT since I am not super sciencey I can’t be sure 🙂
      If you try it with flat soda let me know how it turns out…
      I mean, the most you could waste is a box of cake mix, which luckily isn’t a huge investment!

      1. Jamie Hibbs

        Super awesome idea. I am a lazy cook so this will fit right in to my cookbook. As for laughing when people fall down? If it wasnt funny they wouldnt have a bunch of tv shows about that very thing would they? And as far as potty humor goes….well that has always been funny hasnt it? Why else would little boys be so proud when they learn to make “toot” noises with their armpits? My only criteria for not laughing when someone falls is by how bad they got hurt and what caused the accident to begin with. But if it was their own fault from something they did? They deserve to be laughed at so maybe they wont do it again!! See? You could actually be helping them!

  38. My sister and I are in the middle of baking these right now! We used french vanilla cake mix and a can of dr. pepper cherry! The soda made the batter pink, and what is REALLY fun is that my mom had heart-shaped cupcake tins, so we are going to have pink heart-shaped cupcakes! 🙂 Thanks for the recipe idea! I love simple!

  39. Ok, I am the opposite of you (except crazy mom – I run from her too), but reading about you laughing made it funny to me. I wonder if you reduced the soda a little would it still work? It would definitely increase the amount of soda flavor you could taste.

  40. Melissa

    As I found this on Pinterest, I had to look it up. I am glad I did, I haven’t baked using soda yet, but you gave me a GIANT laugh. I laugh at fall/trips (I truly do care if they are ok, but as someone who can trip over nothing and can laugh at myself, I find it ok to laugh at others), bathroom issues, and run the other direction when I see a wacky mom like that.
    I am planning on making a lot of cupcakes this weekend and will be making this one too. What a time saver!!!

    Thanks again for the laugh!!!

  41. Stephanie

    I made these today and they were great. I didn’t have a funfetti cake so I made my own with a white cake mix and used cherry 7up. I did you your icing but did half and half on the crisco/butter. I just wanted to clarify…you do have to frigerate it or not because of the milk?? Have you ever replaced the milk with water??

  42. MaryAnne

    I was looking for a “special” cake to do for a graduation and came upon this website—–I have now found my newest entertainment. I sat here giggling and my husband had to look at what I was reading. And, oh by the way, I will be trying these cupcakes too!! Thanks.

  43. Holly

    Your sense of humor is fantastic! I enjoy reading what makes you laugh…..I thought i was the only one who still laughs out loud when I think of the bathroom scene from the movie Dumb and Dumber. Keep up the good work!

  44. Michelle

    First I want to thank you for an easy dessert I can make for my kids. Being a mom of 4 teens, it isn’t easy finding something easy, quick, and tasty. I will definitely be trying this one.
    Second, thank you for the laughs. Although I am usually the one in the bathroom stall with tummy troubles, I laugh loudly so that others might not know it is me. Love your sense of humor.
    Third, I found your recipe on Pinterest and hope you don’t mind, but I repinned it.

    1. shelly

      That’s one I haven’t’ heard before! What kind of liner are you using? Some are coated which might make the difference 🙁

        1. shelly

          They stick to the cupcake liner? These cupcakes are slightly stickier than a regular, but not enough that there should be an issue…

  45. Found you on Pinterest and am in LOVE! I am going camping this weekend and have been looking for an awesome camping dessert…might have to try this one! It’ll be great not to have to bring eggs, flour and oil or water! Now I just have to figure out what to put them in to cook over the fire ….hrmmmmm

  46. Sue

    Make this all the time as a cake, but I love your cupcakes even better. Favorite combos are Red Velvet Cake and Diet Cream Soda and Diet Cherry Pepsi and Chocolate Cake. I usually put a spoonful of frozen lowfat Cool Whip on each serving. Almost seems like your having cake and ice cream (Weight Watchers). Use Pam when I make the cakes and never sticks.
    Love your sense of humor! Laughed out loud.

  47. Valerie

    I ABSOLUTELY love this idea. I’m about to try it with GRAPE soda!! I wanted to go very out-there so we’ll see! I plan to top it with a vanilla buttercream. Here’s hoping it goes well…even if the taste isn’t very strong, the color will be rockin’!

  48. denise

    seriously…. you crack me up!! i work a lot of overnights and could use the entertainment!! the task for this evening… find some low fat recipes for my sweet tooth, cause let’s face it… if you don’t feed the inner fat kid, she gets mad and that’s not good for anyone. one of my co-workers actually did a variation of this for the kiddos at work, but she didn’t tell me the exact directions so went i saw the link on pinterest i had to check it out. not only did i get the directions, i got a good laugh too!! thanks for the instructions and entertainement!! 🙂

  49. Sarah

    Love this recipe but I have a question. When you say ‘cake mix’, should we literally just use the powdery cake mix or do we add all of the ingredients (eggs, vegetable oil, etc) to the mix?

  50. Marcia Meyers

    Found your recipe. I have a diabetic grandson. Just made them. Made a bod of instant sugar free chocolate puddina and folding in cool whip. Pipe it on top. Not sure of the carb count but it can’t b much. Thanks!

  51. booboos-mema

    This is my first time visiting this page and I wanted to let you know, my day has been made. As if cow tipping is the same, but children will be children. Thanks for the laughs.

    1. Jen Rath

      I’ve made it both ways, cake and cupcakes. The cupcakes cook up nicer. The cake turns out too done on the outside edges and still a bit too gooey in the center. My favorite is white cake and cherry 7-up

  52. Can you help me with a problem, our cake mix is differant in Australia, can i make the mix according to the packet, and where says milk, could i put the soda in,instead of the milk.
    Cheers Ray

  53. becky

    Someone I follow on Pinterest had a pin to your site and I am so glad they did because you include so many great ideas in your blog with such wonderful humor that I truly relate to. Well done – keep it up! I’m going to subscribe right now!

  54. moca

    Hello, grettings from Mexico, i’d like to know if i can make this recipe in a pie tin??? because i don’t have any cup cake tin, im not a cup cake person, but i wan’t so bad to enjoy this, so please answer me, your website is awosome! thanks!

  55. Amanda-Beth

    Ugh yout turned a cupcake into a muffin there is a reason their is directions on package and it wpuld have made more sense just to mix soda in place of water if no water required for recipie cut oil in half and replace half oil with pop

  56. Robin

    Just wondering if anyone has tried baking these in high altitude – that would be 5,000 ft or above. Were any modifications made to the bake time or oven temp?

    1. Meow

      I should think you need a slightly lower temp if you’re going for the same amount of time. I would try 325, but I’m no expert so it might epically fail 🙁

  57. Jessica

    I’ve made soda pop shop cupcakes for a co-worker with 3 different soda flavors; however I found when I made them with only the can of soda, they didn’t rise like they should have, and they were stuck to the cupcake paper, plus they didn’t taste like the soda at all. Because this was a playing client, I decided I needed to improvise (after ruining 2 boxes of mix), so for the lemon lime cupcakes, I added lemon & lime zest 🙂 As for the orange soda, I added. . . . wait for it. . . . orange zest!!! And finally for the soda “coke” cupcakes, I added coca-cola! I should also add that I used all the ingredients required (substituting the water for soda) in the box cake mixs for moist fluffy cupcakes. With a 2M swirl on top and a straw I was able to acheive my customers order 🙂

  58. M

    Love this recipe! Teach it in my baking classes. It’s also great for individuals who have difficulty metabolizing fats. My friend Izzy (7 years old)loves them. Try “Strawberry Kisses.” Use strawberry cake mix, strawberry soda, dust with confectionary sugar, and top with fresh strawberry slices.

  59. Teresa

    Diet soda works just fine-actually weight watchers reciipes. For chocolate cake use diet coke , lemon or white cake mix use diet sprite zero-makes a nice bundt cake with enough batter to do about a dozen cupcakes -don’t overfill cake pan -bake by directions on cake mix box.

  60. Dorothy Crane

    I bake cupcakes for the kids at most of our church functions and I am always looking for new ideas. These sound great and EASY! Thanks. My creative wheels are already turning!

  61. Gail

    I hate to be an old lady about making fun of people and I really try to not judge. I am concerned about the message you care spending to your child. Off my soapbox, now this sound as delish. Will be very easy for my granddaughter to put it together herself. Thanks so much for sharing. I would like to follow you if you do not plan to block me.

  62. Gail

  63. Rose Angel

    OK, the only comment I will make (besides this is a dynamite recipe and well worth making) is about the artificial sweetener in soda.

    It is not dangerous to heat up, Most are sold in powder for to use in baking!

    Aspartame must be avoided by people with the genetic condition phenylketonuria (PKU). If you are prone to headaches avoid diet sodas (or anything ‘diet’) that have aspartame in it.

    It has been linked to headaches, especially in children. I am 57 years old and have had headaches and migraines since the mid 80’s. Just 6 months ago, after a trip int ER for the 5th time in 4 weeks, One doctor finally linked it to the diet soda. I sopped using it right away and have not had a headache since.

  64. Cyndi

    Love the idea, I’m going to try it in a few hours for my daughters birthday. I’m trying the High heeled cupcakes, wish me luck
    PS.
    I say things like that at Target too 🙂

  65. Sarah J

    Really love the idea of how easy these are. I made some last night and they looked like they were rising in the oven. However, when I took them out to cool they deflated and were very flat, looked like they shrunk so that only half the liner was filled, and also my liners came loose from them. Any ideas on what I may have done wrong or what I could do to avoid this next time??

  66. Jen

    I had a last minute request for lemon cupcakes and went looking on Pinterest for an EASY recipe. I decided yours was the easiest and looked like fun. I made two batches… one lemon cake mix with lemon-lime soda topped with buttercream frosting and dusted with crushed Lemonheads. The other was lemon cake mix with Squirt (lemon-grapefruit soda) and lemon frosting dusted with raw white sugar. They are both fantastic and will be scarfed up by the big crowd that has gathered. Thanks for the great idea!

  67. This sounds so cool! Wish I had a can of soda and cake mix right now.
    About the use of diet soda –
    In my area there is a warning on the labels of some diet drinks to not cook with it, so I guess if the company suggests it, you don’t want to do it 🙂

  68. Melisa

    I have made many cakes with cake mix and diet soda and they turn out great!! My favorites are lemon cake made with diet ginger ale or diet 7up and strawberry cake Made with diet strawberry soda, then frost with sugar free/fat free cool whip and it’s a delicious dessert without the calories and fat!!

  69. Denise t

    You can bake with Splenda and there are some diet soft drinks made with Splenda. Diet Cheerwine is made with Splenda. It would be lovely to use Cheerwine. With a red velvet cake mix.

  70. Mike Murphy

    Hi Shelly, I’m an addict too. I’ve baked a couple of recipes from Ursula Solom’s The Low-Carb Baking and Dessert Cookbook, using combinations of Splenda, Xylitol, and/Truvia, and they not only appear to be safe but in combination, the after-tastes of each are greatly reduced. I always say ahead that the Chocolate Almond Cookies and the Hazelnut Cookies have artificial sweeteners but people say they can’t tell. I hope you get a chance to try them. Best regards!

  71. Janae

    Thank you for sharing this! As a mom of a little one with an egg allergy, it’s been so difficult to find baked goods that are egg free and taste decent! These may be my go to birthday cupcakes for him!

  72. rae

    I’m gonna try these with spice cake and a can of Redd’s Apple Ale, then stuff them with apple pie filling and top with Cookie Butter Frosting! Ahhh fall is back, yay!

  73. Andrea

    This was such a life saver!!!!! It’s my spouses birthday and I had no eggs to bake the cupcakes, so I stressed out, but then thought to look online to see if it was possible to bake Without eggs. Sure enough I ran into this website and I have to say thank you!!!! I’m so happy now, worked like a charm 🙂

  74. Mabel Reyes

    Hello! I’m really interested in trying this recipe, but I want to be sure about the ingredients you I have to omit, they would be: oil, milk and eggs???? I’ll really happy to get your response; I’d like to try this recipe as soon as possible ???? Thanks!!! ????

  75. Tabitha Wilson

    I have done this numerous times! I’ve baked a strawberry cake using strawberry crush and orange supreme cakes with orange crush. I’m going to try a Tropical Mango cake with mango pop!

  76. Karen Richter

    Eating one now, I used Duncan Hines Double Chocolate and Shasta diet black cherry cola and it turned out fantastic. I sprayed the muffin tins as 50 cupcake liners were three dollars, kinda defeated the bargain hunter in me. The cake is moist and very chocolaty. It came right out of the tins with just a bit of help from a knife at the edge. It made 12 generous sized cupcakes. Topped with two tablepoons of fat free cool whip for 25 calories. Thanks, this is really a lower calorie winner

  77. ghing

    hi! i am still learning how to bake and find this recipe an easy one so I wanted to try it for starters. We only have an electric oven and I’d like to know at what temperature should i set it to, and for how long? thank you!

  78. Cujo IsGone

    I cannot give this a star, at all, at all. This was the biggest fail ever. Go ahead and swap out the liquid for soda. However, you must, you must, use the eggs and oil listed on the back of the cake mix. To not do so, is to just pour the drink and the cake mix right into the garbage. PS I had to give it one star in order for the comment to be listed.

    Can I replace the soda with mineral water or baking soda and water? hahahah I don’t have soda right now and I’m not a big fan of it

  80. Oh my goodness I have been using diet soda for years !! Any flavor ! I heard this at a weight watcher meeting many years ago. Strawberry , lemon line , orange any flavor ! You can use chocolate cake mix with cherry very good. It is one can of diet soda and mix it with a cake mix !! Delicious

    Since artificial sweeteners are used in hot tea and coffee and quite a few diabetics use them in place of sugar, I don’t see how using diet soda would be any different! I’m definitely going to try this, it sounds like fun, fast way to make a cake or cupcakes!

    My children have various food allergies especially to eggs and milk. So I make this all the time. Orange Soda in a butter cake is awesome.
