Soda Cupcakes with Strawberry Almond Buttercream Frosting

Oh yes, this is an easy recipe.  Got to love it.

Soda Cake


  • 1 box cake mix
  • 12 oz can of diet soda of your choice
  • 1 egg white

1.  Pour cake mix into large mixing bowl

2.  Dump 12 oz can of diet soda in with cake mix

3.  Add 1 egg white

4.  Mix together with an electric mixer

5.  Bake according to directions on the box!

That’s it, this is as easy as it can get.  I added a surprise into the middle of my cupcakes, strawberry jam.  I filled the cupcake 1/2 full of batter, added 1 t. of jam and then covered the jam.

This just adds to a little surprise inside when you bite into them.

Strawberry Almond Buttercream Frosting


  • 1-1/4 sticks butter, softened
  • 1 t almond extract
  • 1 t strawberry extract
  • 3-4 cups confectioners sugar
  • 3-4 T milk
  • red food coloring

Beat butter and extracts until fluffy, about 30 seconds.  Add confectioners sugar, one cup at a time.  Gradually add milk to achieve desired consistency.  Add food coloring to tint frosting a pink hue.
