Orange Crush Cupcakes
Orange Soda is a summertime favorite around our house. We enjoy orange soda floats quite often. Since the kids love cupcakes, I decided we would whip them up a batch that included some orange soda. The Root Beer Float Cupcakes I made a few weeks ago were such a hit, I knew these yummy cupcakes would be too!
I made our Root Beer Float Cupcakes from scratch but I was running behind the day that I made these. I needed something a bit quicker and easier so I was not late for my appointment. Our Watermelon Cupcakes were so simple since they too use a boxed cake mix. So quick and easy.
Simple doctored cupcakes are sometimes a pure lifesaver. Convenience foods are just needed sometimes, ha ha. Our world has become so fast paced and I have to admit I am a victim of it most of the time.
Ok, back to the cupcakes. These are so simple! You will just need a boxed cake mix, orange Jell-O, orange soda and some pantry staples. They come together very quickly.
