I saw Cupcake Wars for the first time, and I would like to try the Cherry Cola cupcakes that were baked in ice cream cones. Anyone have a good recipe where the cherry flavor won't get lost? The only one I've seen is cake mix subbing cherry cola for the liquid and adding cocoa powder. TIA!

I have a scratch recipe for a coca-cola cake. Maybe you could sub the cherry coke for the regular? I've got to pm it to someone else...I'll send it to you as well if you'd like.

I would love the recipe - Thanks so much! I am looking for scratch cake recipes anyway, although my co-workers love the WASC variations. This time they will get scratch!

Combine buttermilk, eggs, vanilla, soda and mini marshmallows and add to flour/sugar mixture and mix well..scrapping sides of bowl until blended thoroughly. Batter will be thin. Pour into 9x13 inch baking pan (marshmallows will float to top) Bake at 325 to 350 for 30-35 minutes and ice while hot ...............

Another of my grandmother's Coca-Cola Cake recipes...............

1 stick butter
1 cup Coke
3/4 cup mini marshmallows
1 square semi-sweet Baker's chocolate
1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup oil
3/4 cup cocoa
2 eggs
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons vanilla
3/4 cup buttermilk
2 cups sugar
2 1/3 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
Place in saucepan..butter, Coke, chocolate square, bring to full boil and add marshmallows, stir to blend and set aside to cool.
In mixing bowl blend shortening, oil, vanilla and sugar until fluffy. Add eggs and buttermilk and beat until smooth. Mix flour with baking soda, cocoa, baking powder and salt. Add half the flour mixture to shortening mixture and beat, scrapping the bowl. Add cooled Coke mixture and beat add remaining flour mixture and beat until smooth 3 to 4 minutes. Batter will be thick.
Pour into pans (your choice of sizes) and bake at 350 (on top rack) until toothpick inserted in middle comes out clean. about 30-35 minutes. Cook time may vary depending on your oven. (I love the way she worded her recipes....LOL)

Mix : 1 stick butter
1/2 cup cocoa
1/4 cup plus 2-3 tablespoons Coke
3 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup chocolate syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla
Cream butter, cocoa, 1/4 cup Coke and syrup until smooth. Blend in powdered sugar a little at a time and add remaining 2 to 3 tablespoons Coke IF NEEDED...once sugar is fully incorporated, add vanilla. Can ice cake warm or cooled.

If the first recipe isn't what you were looking for maybe this one will work. These are the only recipes that I have for Coca-Cola cake.

Maybe subbing Cherry Coke and adding cherries to the batter could work? What if you added cherry jello instead of the cocoa powder? I don't know...just a suggestion...hope one of the recipes will help you.
