These lemon lime soda cupcakes are super easy to make! Only 6 ingredients total between both the cupcake and the frosting. Perfect for Summer!

Happy Sunday!

I am super excited about these cupcakes that I have to share with you today! I’ve been wanting to make soda cupcakes for so long because I was convinced that it wasn’t an actual thing. A can of soda and a box of cake mix could never make something so delicious.

I was wrong. Very, very wrong.

A can of soda and a box of cake mix can definitely make something so delicious. Add in some lemon and lime juice, butter, and powdered sugar and you’ve got these delicious Lemon Lime Soda Cupcakes!

Perfect for Summer!Aside from the texture of these fluffy cupcakes, I love how many options there are when it comes to soda cupcakes. And I’m a huge fan that I was able to make it work with diet soda which meant a little less calories.

The soda doesn’t add a strong flavor at all to the cake mix. You get a hint of it, but definitely not full-fledged soda flavor. I used Diet Mountain Dew for these, but Sprite or Sierra Mist would easily work, too. Just a little bit of extra lemony and limey goodness to match the delicious frosting is all you need!

Then again, that’s probably the reason I recently rejoined Weight Watchers, haha. If you are on Weight Watchers though, these cupcakes are 8 points a piece. Skip the frosting and they’re 4. Or skip the cupcake part and just enjoy the lemon lime frosting and it’s still 4. ;)

have you ever tried soda cupcakes?
