As you probably know, I love cupcakes.Baking AND eating them.
So for my 4th of July party with Coca-Cola®, I combined my love of the drink with my fave go-to recipe for a super moist, fluffy and scrumptious 4th of July Stars and Stripes chocolate cupcake.
To me, Coca-Cola® epitomizes everything American, and it is perfect for this patriotic holiday!
So I was really happy to use it in my recipe, and decided to give the cupcakes a red, white and blue, stars and stripes look for the occasion.
When pushed for time, I always use boxed cakes and simply bake them according to packet instructions for birthday cakes, or bake them into individual baking cups if making cupcakes.
It's a little cheat that I am totally okay with ;)
The recipe usually calls for cream or milk.But since this was a Coca-Cola® party, I naturally used what I love most instead ;)
Check out the video for full recipe below.
The Coke flavour is really subtle, but does come through, and gives the cupcakes a really fluffy, moist texture but also a hint of caramel-flavour.
It's not too sweet either, and therefore is perfectly balanced when topped with lashings of vanilla bean frosting and sugar sprinkles. YUM!
