Pretty in Pink
« on: July 22, 2008 02:32:43 PM »

I work in education and am currently on my 6 week long summer holidays. I'm already bored! So, inspired by Moutain Dew Cupcakes and Coca-Cola cupcakes I had seen on here I decided to have a go with some fizzy drinks/soda that you can get here in the UK. Vimto, Irn-Bru, Tizer plus Dandelion & Burdock. Sadly you can no longer get Mountain Dew here  Sad I also managed to make some of the ugliest cakes I've made in a long time.  Grin

I used the Nigella coco-cola cupcake recipe but omited the cocoa and doubled it so I had enough to make 4 different sets of cakes.



Some of the sodas worked well, some didn't. Dandelion & Burdock made the best cake and interestingly it was the cakes made with the drink that claimed to have no additives (Tizer) that fared the worse. Cakes shouldn't be chewy and greasy!


From left to right: Dandelion & Burdock, Irn-Bru, Vimto, Tizer

I certainly won't be trying a Tizer cake again, but with a bit of tweaking Dandelion & Burdock plus Vimto could make nice cakes.

Try Dr Pepper!  That makes lovely frosting, so it might make a nice cake too?

funtobewith - As far as I know it was banned in the UK due to the amount of caffine and additives  Huh

nicolatte - the Tixer cupcake also had a scary taste!

Retromiad - I never thought of using Dr Pepper. I'll have to try this next time.
