Ingredients:

Why Buttermilk instead of milk?

I love using buttermilk in this recipe instead of milk or vegetable oil. The buttermilk gives the cupcakes a softer texture and more body. I also love the flavor that it adds to these delicious and easy vanilla cupcakes.

How to make Orange Soda Cupcakes:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line a cupcake pan with your favorite paper liners.

2. Then sift together the dry ingredients( flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt) in a medium bowl. Set aside.

3. Next beat together the butter and sugar with a mixer (stand up or hand held mixer) on medium speed until pale and fluffy.

4. Add in an egg and egg whites, one at a time beat after each addition and then add in vanilla.

5. Whisk in the buttermilk by hand.

6. Slowly mix together the dry ingredient and buttermilk mixture until well blended. Be careful to not over mix these ingredients.

7. Fill your cupcake liners ¾ full.

8. Bake at 350 degrees F for 18 minutes-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

9. Allow the cupcakes to cool in the pan for about 10 minutes.

10. Remove cupcakes from pan and place each on a wire rack to cool completely. While your cupcakes are cooling, make your Orange Crush frosting!

Orange Crush Frosting Directions:

1. Cream all of your ingredients together in a medium size bowl until smooth. Slowly add drops of orange food color and mix between each one until the frosting is the orange color that you prefer.

2. You want your frosting to be thick enough to stand up. If it isn’t thick enough, add more powdered sugar. If it is too thick, add more soda. Be sure to mix well after each addition.

3. Once the frosting is ready, scoop it into a pastry bag with a large decorating tip.

4. Decorate to suit your taste. I topped mine with these adorable striped straws and everyone loved them!
