Two Ingredient Cupcakes With Cheater Frosting


Two Ingredient Cupcakes

Two Ingredient Cupcakes With Cheater Frosting are such an awesome secret – I feel like I am giving you all a huge gift.  This is my favorite go to recipe in a pinch when the kids want a baked snack.  How can you beat a two ingredient cake?  I always buy cake mixes when there is a great sale – frostings too.  Then there are so many great things you can make with cake mixes – and definitely not just cakes.  Don’t let the fact that it is a cake mix limit your imagination!

This recipe can be made with any flavor cake and any flavor soda.  You can use diet sodas but I worry about heating up those artificial sweeteners – so sugary soda it is.  No one in the house really drinks ginger ale but when my daughter was sick a while ago we did purchase some.  Naturally she drank one and we still have a bunch.

Cake Ingredients:

Cake Mix – any flavor

Soda – any flavor –  For a lighter cupcake use 12 ounces (what I used), for a more normal density cake use 8 ounces

Frosting Ingredients:

Can of Frosting – any flavor

Powdered Sugar

Mix together and bake as a cake or cupcakes based on the cake box directions.  Easy as can be.

For the frosting mix some powdered sugar with a can of frosting.  Add approximately a 1/4 cup of powdered sugar at a time until you have it at the desired consistency.  If you don’t add the powdered sugar you will find it difficult to give it a decorative frosting.  Then frost.

I would like to thank Wholeness Home for providing a cake decorating kit to me for this purpose.

I simply fill the canister with frosting and press the button to decorate my cake, cupcakes, cookies etc… Once I am done I take it apart and it is easy to clean – which is very important since I don’t have a dishwasher.  And the end result is so easy that my 9 year old daughter can create these gorgeous cupcakes:
