Soda pop, because of the carbonation, adds leavening to a cake or cupcakes.  It also adds flavor and moisture.  And they’re fun, always bound to be a point of conversion at the party or gathering.

You can use our soda pop cake recipes and make cupcakes or you can use boxed cake mixes from the store.  Here is how to make soda pop cupcakes using boxed cake mixes.
