This super easy recipe for Pineapple Soda Cupcakes is so fun to serve at birthday parties!

Ingredients

  • 1 yellow cake mix
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 ¼-1 ¾ cups Pineapple soda
  • *Pineapple Jello (divided)
  • Yellow, orange or green cupcake liners (Get them at Walmart or on Amazon)
  • Frosting Ingredients
  • 2 sticks salted butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon half and half or whole milk (not pictured)
  • 2 tablespoons Pineapple soda
  • *Pineapple Jello (divided)
  • *yellow food coloring (optional)
  • 1 large piping bag, 1 large round frosting tip
  • Paper straws (optional)
  • Wilton’s Pineapple Royal Sugar Decorations (optional)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray or line a standard muffin tin.
  2. Steps 1-2: Add cake mix to a large mixing bowl. Using a hand or stand mixer, add in your oil, eggs, and soda, and mix on medium until well incorporated. Mix in *1/2-3/4 of the jello.
  3. Step 3: Add batter into the muffin tin until each is about 2/3 full. Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Allow to cool completely before frosting. 

Directions for Frosting:

  1. Step 4:  In a large mixing bowl, using an electric hand or stand mixer, cream the butter, and beat until light and fluffy (about 2 minutes).
  2. Steps 5-6: Mix in the vanilla extract the remaining jello. Mix in the salt.
  3. Step 7:  Mix the half and half or milk and Pineapple soda together. (If you don’t, the carbonation in the soda will break your frosting)
  4. Steps 8-9: Slowly mix in the powdered sugar, 1 cup at a time, while adding a bit of the liquid mixture from Step 7 in between each cup.  Continue to mix for 1-2 minutes or until creamy and forms stiff peaks, but don’t overmix! Add in food coloring if desired. Start with 1-2 drops and mix. Continue until color is achieved.
  5. Step 10: Prepare piping bag and fill bag with frosting and frost your cupcakes. Add your Wilton’s Pineapple Royal Sugar Decorations and straw if desired. Enjoy! Makes 24 cupcakes.
  6. *We found some jello flavors in the frosting can be punchy. A straw poll told us kids like this, but some adults didn’t. So, we suggest for kids to use ½ the jello in the mixes and ½ in the frosting. For adults, use ¾ of the jello in the mixes and ¼ in the frosting. This has worked beautifully!
