Orange crush soda cupcakes

Sunday night Dessert : Orange soda cupcakes

I hope everyone had a good weekend . 
Orange soda cupcakes are my sister favorite . So, these babies don’t last long in my house. If you a really orange cake or frosting, you should add 3-6 drops of food coloring. My frosting is a very light orange. Be careful with the coloring, sometimes people go a little crazy with how many drops they add.



2 1/2 cups – all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon – baking soda
1/4 teaspoon – salt

1 cup – unsalted butter, softened
2 cups – Domino® Granulated Sugar
4 – large eggs

1 tablespoon – orange extract
1 1/2 Tbsp finely grated orange zest (from about 1 1/2 oranges)
