orange cream soda cupcakes

Check out these scrumptious Orange Cream Soda Cupcakes I found on Vanessa Contessa's blog. They look so delicious, I wanted to share the recipe. I divided the ingredients and directions between the actual cupcake recipe and the orange buttercream icing recipe.

Cupcake Ingredients and Directions:

• 1 cup butter
• 2 cup sugar
• 4 eggs
• 4 cups sifted all-purpose flour
• 1 teaspoon vanilla
• 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
• 1 bottle of Orange soda
• 1 tablespoon fresh orange zest

Cream butter and sugar until well blended. Add eggs one at a time and beat well. Sift flour and baking soda. Add to mixture alternately with orange soda. Add vanilla. Pour into cupcake liners and bake at 350 degrees for 22-25 minutes. Cool completely.

Orange Buttercream Ingredients and Directions:

• 1 cup butter
• 4 cups powdered sugar
• 1/4 cup fresh orange juice
• 1 tablespoon orange zest
• 1 teaspoon vanilla

Whip butter. Add powdered sugar and orange juice alternately. Add zest and vanilla. Whip for 3 minutes and pipe onto cupcakes. Garnish with an orange candy.


  1. Yum! There's an orange creamsicle tart in the new Baked cookbook that I've been dying to make! This is reminding me that I need to make it. Btw, I love your site! It's so cute!

  2. Dessert Girl -- I am definitely going to have to check out the Baked cookbook. Let me know if you try any of the recipes because I'm always wanting new ones! :)
