Orange Crush Soda Cupcakes – Summertime Sweets

I don’t know about you- but for me Orange Soda reminds me of Summertime. Orange Crush and even the orange creamsicles. YUMM!!!

My other favorite was the orange sliced candies eaten during the summer.  Available all year round but growing up- going to my grandmothers home in N. Florida- that is when we indulged in all the yummies.  So I been on a cupcake kick lately.  This is what we came up with and really enjoy.

Brought the cupcakes to my book club friends and was given the thumbs up.!

Of course once they realized I used 1 lb of butter in total- they called me Paula Dean. LOL

This recipe I love because the cupcake is creamy/orangey/ and more pound cake like. YUM RIGHT???


It makes about 33 cupcakes. I might split it in 1/2 next time. I think it can easily be cut in 1/2 to make less.

    Besides how yummy they look, they are beautiful. I think you should be on cupcake wars. :-) Love the candy on top, too.

    Have a joy-filled weekend!

    My mouth is watering! They look wonderful! Do you think the recipe would work by making them mini to fit into the plastic push pop containers that are so hot for parties right now?!

    Heavenly! You could really taste the juice and zest in the frosting. Made a big difference

    I wanted to know, since they’re made from scratch, are the cupcakes dense or fluffy?

    These are very good, I made a 1/2 recipe that made 16 cupcakes for my son’s friend’s birthday, he loves Orange Crush pop. I forgot the orange for the zest so I used 3 drops of orange oil to ramp up the taste, I also added a few drops of orange food colouring. I had some buttercream in the freezer so I added orange oil and food colouring to it and the orange pop a little at a time until it was piping consistency.

    It says to bake them in a convection oven for 13-17 minutes first could i just bake them in a regular oven or would that ruin the orange soda taste.

    You can cook them in a regular oven on bake- it will take longer to bake thats all :) Enjoy

    Are these any good? I’m not doubting them, I just want to know if anyone has tried them.. I want to make them for my school’s bake sale. Looks tasty, though! :)

    Also, will diet soda work just the same as regular?

    *update* THESE ARE SUPER TASTY! Very fluffy. I put a little extra zest in the frosting and now the cakes taste like orange Dreamsicles… delicious! :) Everyone at my school will be delighted to have one!
