  1. I don’t think I have seen such perfect cupcakes for a long time 😀
    These look delicious!

    P.S I will not be commenting for 4 weeks due to exams – see you afterwards 🙂

  2. These look AWESOME! I am a big Diet Coke fan, but I tend to buy it when I’m out rather than have it at home. Somehow then it feels like much more of a treat – a cold can straight from the supermarket fridge 🙂

    • Hehe, I know what you mean. I used to buy the bulk cans of cherry coke from Makro all the time. There’s just something more special drinking from a can rather than from a bottle. In fact, it’s even better when you’re on holiday abroad after a long hard day relaxing by the sea or pool and you order a coke and get it in a authentic glass bottle – bliss!

      Can’t say I’m much of a fan of the diet drinks though. They taste funny to me without the proper sugar. I’m just a sugar fiend, but I guess you figured that out anyway! 😉

      Thanks for stopping by, Jo.

  3. Love these! Cherry cola can be hard to get in the uk sometimes, so I think people go crazy when they can get it!

    • I’m in the UK and have had absolutely no problem buying Cherry Coke. It’s available in cans, small bottles and large bottles in all the supermarkets here in the east midlands. Where abouts are you in the UK? I had no idea it wasn’t available all over the UK, that sucks. Even Asda and TESCO do their own brand of cherry cola (I won’t drink it though).

      You can sub out the cherry coke for regular coke and just add cherry flavouring though if you’re not able to find it. Just make sure you don’t use diet as you need the sugars in the coke for this recipe.

      Thanks for stopping by. 🙂

        • Well that sucks. I think I’d go crazy too and get overly excited once I found it if I were in that area.

          I do know that the other flavours that are available in the US, Australia, etc. aren’t available here. The vanilla and the other ones I can’t think of right now.

          I hope it manages to find its way over to your area and soon.

  4. I love chocolate coke cake, so these look great to try as an alternative. They look beautiful (although I’m not sure about your obsession!)

  5. I love cherry coke and these look delicious. Cupcakes are my favorite desert to bring to parties so I’m always trying new recipes.

  6. Great post! Your cupcakes look wonderful! I need to bake these one day. I found you from Ducks in a Row blog hop. Blessings Always and visit me anytime! Diane Roark recipesforourdailybread.com

  7. Oh my, these look wonderful, Lisa! I wish I had one right now. Pinned and sharing on FB, Twitter and G+! Thanks for sharing at Marvelous Mondays!

  8. These look wonderful and I really want to try them. Any advice as to where to buy Cola Extract? They don’t seem to sell it in the grocery stores here in the US. Thanks!

    • I’m not in the US, but I know that LorAnn oils comes from the US. We have to import them here. I used the LorAnn oils in this recipe (apart from the frosting since the LorAnn flavouring since it’s dark cola coloured).

      I can’t really answer on where to purchase them from since I’ve never been to the states – le sigh. Perhaps from the LorAnn Oils website? Hopefully someone may chime in with some info on where to buy them in the states. I’d imagine that any decent cake decorating store sells them though. That’s where I bought mine from locally.

      If you’re still troubled on finding some, I could probably send you some over. But that would work out more expensive since they’re quite pricey here with the export costs being added to the retail price then shipping back to where they came from in the first place. 😆

  10. Hi there!

    I’m just amazed with your site, and just fell in love with this recipe.
    I found only one problem as I was planning to try it….here in my country (Brazil) we don’t have cherry cokes… could you help me and suggest an substitute for it that will keep it good and so delicious as it seems on your pics?

    I’m afraid just mixing normal coke with cherry with maraschino liqueur … using the maraschino liqueur would work as well?

    Thanks for this lovely and delicious recipe!

  11. Would these be ok without the cola essence? I cant get hold of any obviously short notice and am planning on making these tomorrow. didn’t realise it was so hard to get hold of! Im planning on getting some for next time but need it for tomorrow! :-/ help!!
