Yesterday was my daughter’s 2nd birthday and I decided that I wanted to make some cupcakes for her instead of having a huge cake that won’t get eaten. I remember being really young and my great grandmother making a soda cake for me all the time so I wanted to put my own spin on a great memory and I came up with these Dr Pepper® Cherry Cupcakes. Basically the entire recipe centers around the delicious Dr Pepper® Cherry soda and it tastes AMAZING. Because there are only four of us in my family and this recipe makes more than a dozen I thought, “How fun would it be to share them with my neighbors?” It never hurts to share funshine! Also, stick around to the end for news on the giveaway!
Let me give you a little backstory. I first moved to the house I am currently in a couple months ago and my ENTIRE neighborhood welcomed me, a stranger, with open arms. They all dropped off cookies and gift baskets while also walking over, knocking on the door and inviting our entire family to dinner with them sometime in the near future. I have never experienced such EXTREME kindness in all my life. It really inspired me. I decided that the abundance of cupcakes from my daughter’s birthday was the perfect excuse to share funshine with the people that went out of their way for me when I needed it most.
There was one couple specifically that really touched me with all they did for us (they even mowed my grass before my husband made it out to the west coast) so I wanted to give them something special. I decided to fill a gift basket with a few of my favorite things: SNICKERS® Ice Cream Bars 6-pack, M&M’s® Plain 42 oz. Bag, Life Savers® Hard Candy Variety, Skittles® 14 oz., and of course a Dr Pepper® Cherry.
I was extremely proud with how my recipe came out so I decided to make a print of it with a picture of the actual cupcake to include in the basket so they could make it over and over again. I even gave them the key ingredient. If you want to get the printable for yourself, just click here and download it.
