  1. Made these yesterday for a little gathering. They disappeared! Very tasty and I was surprised that they weren’t as sweet as I expected. Just really delicious.

  2. This was a fail for me. I guess I overfilled the cupcake lines, but it looked like 2/3 to me. It would be helpful if you provided something more exact as a guide, such as the total number the recipe should generate or specific volume to add to each liner.

    1. 2/3 is pretty exact… but that is about 3 tablespoons if you are using a standard muffin tin. Generally you will find that cupcake recipes will refer to 2/3 full vs a specific volume though.

  3. I was very disappointed. The cake is kind of like an airy angel food cake consistency and definitely didn’t taste like Orange Crush, like I was hoping. With that said, my kids still enjoyed them.

  4. My 11 year old daughter made these today but with the grape crush variation, as she is a huge grape soda fan. They were delicious! So fun and different. We loved them :-).
