Recipe - 2 Ingredient Cupcakes

2 Ingredient cupcakes - WAIT - WHAT

Did you say 2 Ingredients?

YEP you heard right. Grab your favourite cake mix and soft drink and your ready to get started.

This is a fun and quirky recipe which is great one for the kids to get involved and help with.

Kids will love watching the Soft Drink frothing up in the cake mix, added bonus mum can sit back and let the kids whip these up.

Today we made two batches of these super simple cupcakes, one was a Chocolate cake mix with Lemonade. The second batch was a Vanilla cake mix with Creaming Soda. The creaming soda added a subtle pink colour to the muffin and the icing with was quite cute. You could taste the creaming soda in these cupcakes as a nice change to plain vanilla. Side note (for our interest sake)- What is the flavour of Creaming Soda? Is it Rasberry, Cherry, Strawberry? We couldn't put a name to it. Hahaha

"They were really nice" said a mum at Hub Kitchen, "Yumm" her the two year old.
