Hi loves, now that Springtime officially sprung, the sun is shining, flowers are blooming. Everything seems bright and colorful, or I might be just so happy because the gloomiest days had past and now that my favorite season has arrived I'm like a big kid who can't hide her excitement.
Easter is on its way, everything about Easter makes us swoon over the colorful flowers, pastel palettes, and never-ending sweets. Well, since we are talking about desserts, I would love to share with you a recipe that I'm planning to have for our upcoming Easter party.
This cupcake is one of my favorites dessert and reminds me of Spring because of the shape of flowers and its colors. I called it soda cupcakes since one of the main ingredients is carbonated drink such a Sprite or any of your favorite carbonated beverage, light cakes, easy to make and super yummy. It's a perfect cake to eat with hot cocoa or coffee while reading my favorite books, and it's also excellent dessert for the afternoon snack. These are one of kids favorites dessert on a Birthday party and very popular on any of my family gathering.
Note: You can also decorate with any of your favorite Icing.
200gr standard flour
200 ml soft drink, e.g Sprite or any flavor
1 tsp cake emulsifier In cake or baking emulsifiers improves gas bubble stability, resulting in light, tender and moist product. Or you can omit emulsifier, you just need to beat the egg and sugar batter longer until it is very thick for about 10-15 minutes.

Great things about this cupcakes you can choose any flavors or color you want.
