Dr. Pepper Cakes

This week we have Dr. Pepper cupcakes. These cakes are for my brother P.j., he's a Dr. Pepper fan. I thought it would be fun to make some cakes with sodapop.

The cake is made of chocolate and chocolate chips. I added Dr.Pepper to the batter  in place of almost half the milk. I warmed the soda in a pan then mixed ingredients together. The topping is made like a regular white frosting with a dribble of soda and topped off with red glitter.

The flavour is very good. Moist chocolate with a sweet topping. The only problem is you can barely taste the Dr. Pepper in the cake. Its a good slight Dr. Pepper taste if that's what you are looking for. I was looking for a strong Dr. Pepper flavour. Though this is a good recipe for yummy chocolate cake I need to sit down and redo the Dr.Pepper recipe to create the flavour I desired, allot more of the Dr. Pepper taste. 

Baby Cake Testers say: It was a mixed crowed. Some loved it with the slight Dr.Pepper taste and some thought it was a bit sweet.
