I’m not much of a baker…I always take the easy way out. Now that I’ve tried a soda cupcake I can’t go back…ever. It’s the easiest and most delicious cupcake I’ve ever made. They’re moist and fluffy and the icing is to die for. Oh, and they’re filled with marshmallow cream. Yeah, these Dr. Pepper TEN Spider Cupcakes wonderful.
Just a disclaimer…they’re called “Spider Cupcakes” because of the cupcake wrapper, not because of the ingredients. Just in case anyone was confused 😉
These spider cupcake wrappers will be perfect for a Halloween Party. They were really easy to make with my Silhouette. I just printed them, cut them with the Silhouette, wrapped them around the cupcakes and taped them. After that, I bent the legs. I used craft paper so the legs would have some color. You can use any color you’d like! I’m thinking they’d be cute with red or orange paper, as well! Also, you don’t have to have a Silhouette to make these (it just makes it soooo much easier!)

I love Dr. Pepper TEN because it tastes JUST like the normal flavor with fewer calories…which is helpful when you’re making Dr. Pepper Cupcakes. I got the liter bottle at Fry’s, along with all the other goodies to make this treat.
My family DEVOURED these babies. I told my daughter she could have one after her nap…the second she woke up, she remembered to ask me for a cupcake. It was gone in about 5 seconds before she asked for another. Poor thing, I made her wait till after dinner 🙂
The beauty of these cupcakes is that you can make them with any cake mix and any soda. I’m thinking I REALLY need to make some root beer cupcakes with A&W TEN. What #drinkTEN combo would you make?
