Cherry Coke Float Cupcakes
Chocolate cupcakes made with Coca-Cola, filled with cherries, topped with a Coca-Cola glaze, whipped cream frosting and cherry on top!
Nothing says fun quite like turning one of your favorite drinks into cupcakes. In the past, I’ve introduced you to Limoncello Cupcakes and Margarita Cupcakes; this time I left the alcohol behind and created a cupcake tribute to one of my favorite bubbly drinks as a kid.
My parents didn’t routinely keep sweets or pop in the house while we were growing up, so we really only got them when it was a special occasion (birthday party/sleepover) or we were eating away from home. I always remember getting a Cherry Coke when we’d find ourselves at Eat n’ Park grabbing dinner. I don’t know why I associate my Cherry Coke consumption with that particular restaurant, but I don’t remember having it anywhere else. Needless to say, when I saw this rendition of a childhood favorite in cupcake form I knew they needed to grace my kitchen.
This recipe begins with a chocolate-cola cake, is filled with cherry pie filling, topped with a sugar-cola glaze, then finally topped off with my favorite whipped cream frosting for cupcakes, and a maraschino cherry, of course. What’s a float without some whipped cream and a cherry?! Although there are multiple components, these cupcakes come together relatively quickly.
The combination of chocolate, the faint Coke flavor, the cherry filling, and the whipped cream on top is a sensational combination of flavors and textures.
These would be a fun cupcake option for someone who is a fan of black forest cake. Although it’s not traditional, it’s definitely a modern twist on the chocolate/cherry combination. I also think that these cupcakes would be great for summer picnics, much like the Root Beer Float Cake that I made many moons ago.
If chocolate-covered cherries are your jam, or you love cherry-flavored cola, add these to your baking list ASAP!

Cherry Coke Float Cupcakes
For the Cupcakes:
- 1½ cups (187.5 g) all-purpose flour
- 3 tablespoons natural unsweetened cocoa powder
- ½ teaspoon (0.5 teaspoon) baking soda
- ¼ teaspoon (0.25 teaspoon) salt
- ¾ cup (150 g) granulated sugar
- ½ cup (113.5 g) unsalted butter, at room temperature
- 1 egg
- ½ cup (120 ml) buttermilk
- ¾ cup (177 ml) Coca-Cola (don't use diet)
- 1½ teaspoons (1.5 teaspoons) vanilla extract
- 21 ounce (595.34 g) can cherry pie filling
For the Glaze:
- ¾ cup (90 g) powdered sugar
- 2 tablespoons Coca-Cola
For the Whipped Cream Frosting:
- 8 ounces (226.8 g) cream cheese, at room temperature
- ½ cup (100 g) granulated sugar
- 1½ teaspoons (1.5 teaspoons) vanilla extract
- 2 cups (476 ml) heavy cream
- Maraschino Cherries, for garnish
- Make the Cupcakes: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and line a standard muffin pan with paper liners; set aside.
- Sift together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl and set aside.
- In a mixing bowl, combine the sugar and butter and beat on medium-high until light and creamy, about 3 minutes. Add the egg and beating for an additional minute. In a large mixing cup or small bowl, combine the buttermilk, Coke and vanilla extract. (Make sure you wait for the foam to go down when measuring the Coke and don't worry if your mixture looks curdled when you add the buttermilk.)
- Beginning with the flour mixture, add in 4 parts to the butter mixture, alternating with three parts of the Coke mixture. Beat each addition just until incorporated. Give the final mixture a good mix with a rubber spatula to make sure it is thoroughly combined.
- Divide the batter evenly between the muffins cups. Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until the tops spring back when touched lightly and a toothpick inserted in the center cupcake comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes in the pan and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
- Fill the Cupcakes: Once cooled, use a paring knife to cut out a cone shape in the middle of each cupcake. Add a spoonful of cherry mixture (2 to 3 cherries) to the well.
- Glaze the Cupcakes: In a small bowl whisk together the powdered sugar and coke. Let sit 5 to 10 minutes to thicken. It should drip off of a soon very slowly. Using a small offset spatula, drizzle a little of the glaze onto the middle of each cupcake and then gently spread it over the top.
- Frost the Cupcakes: On medium speed, beat the cream cheese, sugar and vanilla extract in a mixer with the whisk attachment until smooth and completely combined, about 3 minutes. Slowly add the heavy cream, scrape the sides of the bowl, then increase speed to medium-high and whip until stiff peaks form. Pipe the whipped cream onto cupcakes as desired and top with maraschino cherries to garnish. Serve immediately, or store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

I just made these cupcakes yesterday. The only changes I made were homemade cherry pie filling and no maraschino cherry. I loved these cupcakes! The cake was super delicious and I loved the light a fluffy icing! I will be making these again. This is the second cupcake I have made from your blog and you are becoming one of my favorites! I can’t wait to make more of your recipes.
I made these cupcakes for my Step-daughters birthday when the original recipe came out, gosh in 2012. They are a wonderful, moist cupcake and I love the cherry filling. It takes some time to make them, but definitely a keeper. Love that you re-posted this recipe.
This looks so good. Yummy, I wish I could have some right now.
Cherry Coke Float Cupcakes… Mmmm….! I haven’t seen a cupcake look so yummy-‘Licious!
Is there a reason I am no longer getting you email or many days I don’t?
Hi Linda, There seem to be hiccups with the list, as the email is delayed, meaning the next day’s email includes two days’ worth. It’s happening to me, too. I’m working on getting it corrected.
I’d love to make these beautiful cupcakes for my daughter’s birthday. Do you know how the whipped cream topping does sitting out? They’d be inside, but at a dessert table for about 2 hours… Do you think they’d hold up?
Hi Claudia, If they’ll be inside for 2 hours, they should be just fine. Enjoy!
I made these for a Superbowl Party last month. It was crazy how many compliments I received!
I made these for my son’s first birthday (which was 2 years ago). I just thought to leave a comment because I was here looking for ideas for his third birthday :) These cupcakes came out beautifully and they were an absolute hit. People still ask me to make them. My son had a great time smashing his cupcake and stuffing his face with chocolate, whipped cream, and cherries.
this recipe did not live up to any of the standards of the pictures. The cake part was great but the frosting and glaze were complete fails. Nothing was like the instructions or like the pictures. Will not be outing this in my recipe book.
Late into last night and all this morning, I took a stab at recreating 3 different cupcake recipes of yours (including this one, the vanilla with vanilla buttercream one, and the Dutch chocolate, ganache-filled, chocolate buttercream one) for a fun birthday gathering today, and all got RAVE reviews! I was even asked if I purchased them at a very talented, local cupcake boutique!!! I can’t decide which is my favorite. They are all so decadent and very memorable on the tongue (and just so you know, as my husband, 2-year old, and I were taste-testing the chocolate ganache and the chocolate buttercream frosting for the chocolate cupcakes, my husband said in all earnestness “I seriously don’t think I’ve tasted anything so good”…while the 2-year old just kept begging for more). And the Cherry Coke cakes are super fun (and moist!). I just had one after eating all day, and it was still so worth it! I think my guests and I gained significant weight with smiles today!
I made the cupcakes tonight, they were beautiful and domed until they started to cool then they sunk! I checked them with a toothpick before taking them out and it came out clean so I don’t know what went wrong. Anyway, do you think I should just put the filling in the “dent” where they sunk in and not bother with cutting out a cone in the middle?
Hi April, You could do that, or cut out a little. It’s hard to say, not knowing how deeply they sank.
WTF is an Irish Car Bomb cake? Do you also have an Oklahoma Bombing Brownie and a Twin Towers Cupcake, or is it not so ‘fun’ when it’s Americans being killed?
Hi there! Firstly I have to say I absolutely love your blog, I’ve tried other recipes and the peanut butter banana bread was a hit! Now my problem is that I live in India and sometimes the required ingredients in your recipes aren’t available here. Can you tell me a way to make the cherry pie filling at home? There are different recipes available on the net but I thought it would be best if I asked you.
Hi Kal, This is the only cherry pie I’ve made from scratch, but it does still use canned cherries, I’m not sure if you have those available. If not, there are tons of homemade pie filling recipes out there using fresh or frozen cherries:
These look delicious and so fun! Love the surprise in the middle. If only I weren’t allergic to cherries =/. But they still look fun to make for a 4th of July party.
LOVE these cupcakes so much! I made them and shared them on my blog with credits back to you. Thanks so much for a fabulous recipe! :)
I made these two days ago, and they were AMAZING!!! I just ate the last one haha.
It took twice the time to bake the cupcakes but I think it is because of the altitud here in Mexico, or maybe the oven. I´m trying more of your recipies definitley!!! Congrats!
Everybody loved them ;)
Made these today. BLESS YOU!! They are so delicious. I used Cherry Coke instead of regular. I had to increase the cooking time at least 2-4 minutes for some reason (obviously all ovens are different). I recommend that everyone do the toothpick test before deciding they are done. The frosting is light and creamy. These are worth the extra effort. Love!!
i like this one, nice
Hi! Will it be possible to change cherry with other type of fruit, say Mangoes?
If you’d like it, certainly.
I want to make these for a picnic this weekend. Do you how the icing holds up if they are not refrigerated for a little while?
Hi Jennifer, Since it’s a fresh whipped cream frosting, I probably would not leave these out in extreme heat for a long period of time.
I love this site and all informations. It´s beautiful and the pictures inspire me :-). Congratulations!
Hi! I am trying to figure out which ingredients you used to make these cherry coke cupcakes. For the heavy whipped cream what kind did you use and is it okay to use heavy WHIPPING cream?
Yes, heavy whipping cream would be a fine substitution.
Has anyone tried making this in a bundt or poundcake pan? I’m thinking it could work.
I made these for a coworker’s 30th birthday- they were excellent! The batter tasted like a Wendy’s Frosty mixed with a Coke float. Delicious! I found the batter to be very runny so I added a 1/4 extra flour. I got nearly 55 cupcakes from one batch. Great recipe, thanks for sharing!
Made these for my boyfriend’s birthday today! Neither of us likes cherry flavor so I used regular coke and substituted a rum and chocolate ganache for the cherry filling. They are delicious.
Thanks for the recipe! Or at lease the base ;)
Love your website, you never disappoint.
Question – do I use unsweetened cocoa powder or dutch processed cocoa powder?
Love your website!
Hi Liz, You can use either.
These were fantastic! I followed the recipe exactly. Though, I am not sure that the glaze was entirely necessary. It didn’t seem to add a whole lot. But maybe that was just me. Regardless, I highly recommend :). I didn’t get a lot of coke flavor, but I liked what the coke did to the texture of the cake.
These look wonderful[no surprise]! You do amazing work, I’ll definitely have to try these out sometime soon!
i love these cupcakes.these are looking so tasty…..
latest fashion and home decoration
These look absolutely amazing! I’m definitely trying these, especially after making your espresso cupcakes and the limoncello ones. But can I replace the coke with actual cherry coke to make it more… Cherry-coke-y? Or will that mess it up?
Yes, you could definitely do that!
Thank you for this recipe. Just baked this and they came out perfect. My husband and kids love the cake and frosting. The only issue was with the Glaze, it was kind of runny,did not thicken after 15min but I used it like that.Overall the cake was just perfect. Next time I’ll do as you suggested and bake the cake 2 days in advance for the coke flavor to come through. Tnx. I love your blog
Love, Love, love…. Michelle…. You make this look easy and tasty……I have baked enough vanilla… i now want some really tasty and cupcakes…
I love these cupcakes! I am going to try to convert this to a cake. Any suggestions?
Hi Katie, You’ll need to double the recipe for an 8 or 9-inch two-layer cake and probably increase the baking time a little bit.
I’ve made these before and they were delicious. However, I was wondering if you could recommend a different frosting I could use that would be more suitable for traveling a bit of a distance (I wanted to make them for my boyfriend’s nephew’s birthday, and we’ll be driving from Delaware County to Pittsburgh) so I don’t have to worry about it melting or curdling, or having to prepare the frosting once we arrive. Thanks.
Hi Samantha, I would recommend the vanilla buttercream recipe here: https://www.browneyedbaker.com/2010/10/28/vanilla-cupcakes-vanilla-buttercream-frosting/. Enjoy the cupcakes!
These look incredible! This is my first time visiting your site and I find myself repeating to my computer screen, “You evil genius.” BTW – for the whipped cream topper, I would recommend a stabilized whipped cream — all of the flavor, with a lbit of insurance that your piping will hold its shape for much longer. Check it out:
STABILIZED WHIPPED CREAM ICING
1 tsp. unflavored gelatin
4 tsp. cold water
1 c. heavy whipping cream (at least 24 hours old and very cold)
1/4 c. confectioners’ sugar
1/2 tsp. clear vanilla extract
Combine gelatin and cold water in small saucepan. Let stand until thick. Place over low heat, stirring constantly just until gelatin dissolves. Remove from heat and cool slightly. Whip cream, sugar and vanilla until slightly thickened. While beating slowly, gradually add gelatin to whipped cream mixture. Whip at high speed until stiff.
Yield: 2 cups
Cakes iced with whipped cream must be kept refrigerated.
These look gorgeous! My poor diet just caved, I’m going to have to give making them a try this weekend. Thanks for the recipe.
I’ve adapted this recipe and come up with some delicious cupcakes!
What a beautiful cupcakes! Thanks for the cool recipe!
I loved the sponge and the topping but wasn’t mad on the glaze, I wonder what the taste would be if using cherry coke in the recipe mmmmm has anyone tried this? Lorraine x
I just put 2 and 2 together and got 4. nevermind :)
I want to make these cupcakes, but I’m a little worried about cutting the cone shape out of the center. Any suggestions on how to make this go smoothly?
How do they stay instact, once replacing the bottom?
Also, how did you get the cupcake liners on the cupcakes, if you filled them? (lol)
I was wondering if you could use cola extract or cola syrup instead of actual cola to add more of the cola flavor?? I’m thinking that may work better for the glaze. I am going to try this week!
Yes, you could definitely do that! Enjoy!
I used this recipe as a basis for some cupcakes I did and I was wondering if I you mind if I did a blogpost about it, with backlinks of course
I was wondering if actual Cherry Coke could be used in the cupcake batter versus just plain Coke…I’m not a fan of the pie filling but I still want that cherry taste. What do you suggest? Thank you! I LOVE your website..thank you for sharing your wonderful ideas and recipes. :)
I made these over the weekend and they tasted yummy! The glaze was a teeny bit runny but nothing that I couldn’t work with. I’m going to try this again as I’d like the cake to be a little more moist. Aside from that they were perfect.
ooohhh…these are dreamalicious
So I made these tonight and doubled the recipe to make 2 dozen, but mine appear to be very greasy on the bottom of the cupcake liners and seem heavy. Do you suggest maybe next time reducing the amount of butter in them? Not sure if anyone else has had this problem.
Hi Jennifer, I’m not sure that I would reduce the butter; I didn’t seem to have any grease issues. You might want to try a different brand of cupcake liners to see if that makes a difference.
Mine are greasy, too. I’m using Wilton’s cupcake liners.
I was wondering if you could make this as a cake( I was thinking a 9X13 or a two 9″ layer) instead of cupcakes. If so would you suggest pouring 1/2 the batter, then the cherries, then the other 1/2 of the batter? I really want to make this for my son’s birthday, but I’m a little intimidated…
Hi Jennie, You would need to double this recipe for a 9×13 or two 9″ layers. I don’t know that I would recommend putting the cherries inside the unbaked batter. You might right into some trouble with baking. I would probably make the cakes and then use the cherries as a topping, or filling.
I made these cupcakes yesterday, and the verdict was about half and half. I had a little trouble filling them, but the whipped frosting was SOOO GOOOD! Oh my goodness, i wanted to eat it with a big spoon! Can i put this whipped cream on other cupcakes/cakes/waffles?
I love these cupcakes and I made them for a Super Bowl Party. But I found that the “coke” flavor didn’t come out in either the cupcake or the glaze. I just made them again last week and substituted a “dessert topping” that was Dr. Pepper Cherry for the actual Coke in the batter and in the glaze; I found the result was better for my taste as the topping was more thick and concentrated in flavor. Any other ideas????
Hi Heidi, I will have to give that a try the next time I make them, thank you for sharing! As far as more concentrated flavor, I definitely found the flavor to come through more the second and third day. Perhaps make the cupcakes a day or two ahead of time, seal in an airtight container, and then frost when ready to serve? It might help to enhance the coke flavor.
My favourite “Float” has always been ginger beer, so maybe this will also work if I replace the Coca Cola with it? And what about good old cream soda? That should also work like a bomb!
Hi Wendy, I do believe that those should also work! Just make sure you don’t use diet versions (which don’t have sugar in them).
i made these today… it was my first time working with whipping cream, i whipped it til it stuck to a spoon as instructed, but it didn’t hold it’s shape as well as yours seems to have once i put it on the cupcakes… yours looks lighter/fluffier… should i have whipped it for a longer period of time to get that consistency??? they were still great tasting, i’d just like to know for future reference…
Hi Jennifer, I think whipping cream was one of the hardest things for me to overcome when I first started baking. Sometimes I would whip it too soft, and sometimes I was on the verge of making butter from whipping it too long. It honestly takes a bit of practice to get the feel for it and know when it is at the right “soft peak” stage and the right “stiff peak” stage. I think you probably just needed to whip it for a tad longer.
These look great!
When you say whipped cream, do you mean like whipping cream, or Cool Whip (or something like it)?
Hi Sarah, Whipping cream (or heavy cream or heavy whipping cream), definitely not Cool Whip.
Love how it looks like! I will use these cupcakes for my daughter’s ice cream party. Can you tell me what tip you used to pipe the frosting? It looks beautiful!
Hi Diane, I used a Wilton 1M decorating tip.
Your post is beautiful- it reminds me of black forest cake. I reviewed the recipe and changed it up a bit with some strawberries and cream on my blog
Thanks for the cool recipe!
I made these as well , they didn’t taste much like coke… They were yummy though. I didn’t use the glaze it tasted nothing like coke just tasted like powdered sugar… Maybe next time I will use Dr. Pepper….
First off I’d like to say- amazing photography! These look straight out of a magazine ;D I was super excited to bake them, and I did today, but unfortunately they didn’t come out as planned :( The cupcakes looked okay when they came out of the oven, but then sunk and got very heavy. The texture is almost chewy, and I didn’t taste any Coke :[ I know I must have done something wrong, but what?
Thanks so much! :)
Hi Ashley, Usually when cakes and cupcakes sink in the middle it’s because they were taken out of the oven before they were completely cooked through in the middle.
Sounds sweet and yummy. Not sure if we would like them but they are really adorable.
why can’t we use diet coke? or coke zero?
Hi Shelley, Because neither of those have sugar in them.
I’m definitely going to try to do it one day! It looks amaaaazing!!
This recipe made me instantly think of the super bowl! So I made them today to freeze and Fill/frost Sunday. But of course One got lost on the way to the freezer ;) they taste like a tootsie roll! But you definitely get the soda too! The only thing was the paper didn’t peel off perfectly. Did that happen to you? Of course I might not have let them cool enough. Just wondering! Thanks!!
Hi Malina, I actually didn’t have a problem with the paper coming off, it just peeled right off.
Oh I’ll just have to check another one :) thanks!
OMG! You are my Cupcake Hero!!!
I made these and we loved them:)) My husband is a huge jack and coke fan, and I was wondering if you knew how I could incorporate jack into these? Thanks and have a wonderful day:)
Oooh I love this idea! I would say you could substitute some jack for the coke in the batter, maybe use jack instead of the coke for the glaze (or 50/50). Mmm now I want a jack and coke cupcake :)
I have NO IDEA how I missed this post and now I see this comment! Has anyone tried this? (Also,…do you think mini’s would hold up well with the cherries and glaze?)
Hi Stephanie, I haven’t tried it, but I think mini’s would be just fine.
I made these yesterday. The cake is really, really good, and I love the cherries and the frosting. But I had trouble with the glaze. My glaze didn’t thicken as you described. I even added more powdered sugar, but it was still pretty runny, and that was after letting it sit for at least 10 minutes. They still tasted amazing; they were just a little messy. I might try decreasing the Coke to 1 Tbsp. instead of 2 next time I make them.
I had the same trouble with the glaze! I added more powdered sugar, too, but then the coke flavor didn’t come through as much. Other than that, the cupcakes turned out amazing!
I had the same problem. I thought next time I make them, instead of using soft icing sugar I will try pure icing sugar and see if that makes a difference.
I had problems with the glaze, too. I doubled the sugar and it was still runny.
I’ve GOT to make these! :)
Gorgeous! Just looking at these photos makes me feel like a kid again :) i can’t wait to try these out for an upcoming party or get together!
Absolutely brilliant! I know a half dozen family members who would LOVE this!
I love these cupcakes. I must make them immediately. And eat ten in one sitting.
Could you use any other type of soft drink like root beer?
Absolutely, I don’t see why not!
ohhh maaann — I could sure do with a cupcake now ;) these don’t just sound delicious but they look delicious!
Those cherries are bagging to be eaten right this moment! Great blog, my friend recommended to stop by for baked recipe. She tried many of your recipes and it all came out perfect. I need to start practicing for Valentines… :)
Cherry Coke is my FAVORITE! Thanks for the recipe!! Yum!
these look fabulous. i’ve been wanted to make something with blackberry soda and these would be perfect!
thanks for the inspiration!
Nice to finally comment here instead of just stalk you. hehe
Well these gems of yumminess will definitely be making a debut at my house for Valentine’s Day & I can’t wait!! I do have one question: would you recommend “frosting” them with the whipped cream right before serving? How does the whipped cream hold up otherwise? I’m assuming these cupcakes also need to be stored in the frig due to the whipped cream . . .
Thanks, Michelle, for all your delicious inspirations. Oh! And our Pens are getting back on track :) GO PENS!
Hi Michelle, I would just recommend frosting them with the whipped cream the same day. If you do really whip it to stiff peaks, it will hold its shape, and you can leave them at room temperature if serving the same day. Otherwise, you could make them a day or two ahead, keep them in airtight container at room temperature, and then frost the day you plan to serve them.
And yes, definitely, GO PENS!
These are so fun! I love the cherry in the middle. Thanks so much for the inspiration!
These are genius … and gorgeous. Love, love, love them for Valentine’s Day.
These look heavenly! I’m a Southern girl so Coke floats were a regular drink in our home as a sweet treat. Love the spin you’ve put on this classif drink by turning it into a cupcake.
These are so fun!!!
What beautiful cupcakes!!
What a fun cupcake!
These would make me happy. That is all!
Thanks for the post!
These look great! They would be perfect for a tween’s birthday party/sleepover. We’re like your parents and don’t always allow Coke and other treats in the house. These would help to make the day special!
These cupcakes are adorable! I love the drizzle going down the side, just like a real float!
I know it’s simple and light but I want the frosting so bad.
omygosh I need to make these cupcakes! I love this idea! When I was a kid I was obsessed with Cherry Coke slushies… and still sneak one in every once in a while :)
I absolutely LOVED Cherry Coke when I was a kid! I will have to hold onto this recipe for sure.
I love these cupcakes:-) They look delicious. Can’t wait to try them.
Oh wow. I don’t drink soda anymore but I used to down cherry cokes in seconds. These cupcakes look and sound amazing, I love the glaze & the cherry filling addition…oh yum. Delicious!
My husband will love these!! He loves cherries and cherry coke
Cherry Coke was/is my absolute favorite! I loved going to restaurants and getting the homemade cherry coke with the maraschino cherries at the bottom. Yum :) These look outrageously delicious, I pinned the recipe and can’t wait to try these out!
These are freaking beautiful!
These are too cute! I have been wanting to make Cherry Coke cake for a long time, but I love the idea of turning it into cupcakes with a cherry in the middle. Great idea! These would be a great Valentine’s Day treat. Something about chocolate and cherries is so romantic! :)
Love these photos! Just gorgeous!
Beautiful!! What a cute idea! I love that there is a cherry inside too :)
These are so pretty! I think I’ll make these for my daughters birthday next month! I
So cute. I ate my share of cherry coke (homemade) at a little place I worked in High School. Love the stuff.
These are just gorgeous!
I neeeeeeeeeed these!!
such a cute idea!
These look delicious as well as beautiful. I am so thrilled to have found your blog. I enjoy every one of your posts, stories, beautiful photography and of course recipes. I plan to make these for my mother for Valentine’s Day…thanks for the inspiration!
If a cupcake could be uplifting, this would be it!
I love how cool and retro these look, especially that gorgeously shiny cherry!
Wow, that molten center looks amazing! :) I’ve never had a float (yes, yes! I’m not American, sue me!) but am curious to try one/a float cupcake. Looks delicious!
Ahhhh! Love, love, love!
These are so adorable, especially with the cherry on top!
These look absolutely sinful – a delicious cute cupcake filled with the addictive drink :D
These are so fun and so colorful. Not to mention that they look super delicious. LOVE your pictures of these too!
I’ve seen a recipe similar to this one, but using Dr. Pepper. This sounds so much better! Your pics are beautiful and those things look scrumptious!
Spectacular! The flavors, the photography (love the pops of bright RED), and I love maraschino cherries. I love everything about this recipe and post!
Hi! I’m very excited to make these! I love cherry come and I remember when McDonald’s came out with coke floats (I still have the coke glass it came in).
Question: is the flour, etc. sifted before or after measuring?!?
By the way: I made your Tres Leches cake last night! It was a hit!
Hi Grace, Measure the flour and other ingredients, and then sift together. And glad you loved the Tres Leches Cake!
Hi! Do these taste good or just look good?
Now I REALLY need to remake these cupcakes. It’s been way too long! Your photos are so beautiful & cheery! :)
They are fantastic! I made them for the people at work, and they were a big hit. It was also the first time that I made fancy cupcakes, they were easy and totally adorable.
