Who’s excited for NCAA® March Madness?! Besides the fact that the stores are stocked to the brim with delicious snacks, it’s a fun time to plan a get together with friends and family! Even if they’re not fans of a particular team they can surely enjoy getting together and having fun. One of the deals we stocked up on recently were these Coca-Cola NCAA® Final Four Pack available at Walmart. They’re available in Coke Zero, Cherry Coke, and Vanilla Coke. Have I mentioned before that I’m slightly obsessed with Coca-Cola?! Well if not, then I absolutely am. I love the classic taste, and the way the bubbles make me hiccup after the first sip.
Besides the fact that I love Coca-Cola, they were having a fantastic sale thanks to NCAA® March Madness, you can get 4 packs (16 cans) for $5 or 2 packs for $3. Score! Plus that makes it so easy to make sure we have enough for our guests, since I will most likely be sneaking a few of them for myself. And also using a few to make these Ahhh-mazing Cherry Coke Float Cupcakes.
Who doesn’t love a cupcake?? If you are that person, we may not be able to be friends.. Well, I may be able to get over it. But you’ll be having to deal with me talking about cupcakes, making cupcakes, taking pictures of cupcakes, and basically shoving cupcakes into your life whether you like them or not. These Cherry Coke Float Cupcakes are a definite winner for me! Not to mention they are a winner for my husband too..and my hubs is not a fan of sweets. I know right? But even he cannot pass up a cupcake. In fact this recipe is so simple to make the cakes, he could bake these on his own! The hubs loves to cook, but I don’t believe I have seen him do any baking.
The cake is super easy, cake mix and some Cherry Coke, plus a little additional cherry extract to boost the flavor. They ‘re filled with a superb Cherry Coca-Cola reduction glaze. Whaaaat?! Yes, you heard me right. A Cherry Coca-Cola reduction glaze. Just saying that makes me feel happy. The glaze filling makes these so moist, and definitely infuses the flavor straight into the heart of the cupcake.
Top all of that off with a cherry-vanilla swirled frosting, a maraschino cherry, and all is right in the world. (If you need some help with swirling the frosting, make sure you check out my tutorial on how to do it here.) No matter how the games turn out, these will be a sure hit! And most likely, the talk of the party!
