Red Velvet Dr Pepper Cupcakes Recipe Review

Continuing on with my Soda Pop Cupcakes series I present Red Velvet and Dr. Pepper – my fave pop in a cupcake! The Dr. Pepper in the icing adds a light brown tint to the icing so it looks great with chocolate candies. I used the miniature Hershey chocolates and it gave a little more variety as some had krackle’s, mr. goodbars, etc… on them. Anything chocolate would be delicious though.

Cupcake Tools I recommend:

Red Velvet Dr. Pepper Cupcakes

Red Velvet Dr. Pepper Soda Cupcakes


  • Cake
  • 1 Red Velvet Cake Mix
  • 1 12 oz. can of Dr. Pepper
  • Icing
  • 1 1/3 cups shortening
  • 1/3 - 1/2 cup Dr. Pepper
  • 3 tablespoons Dream Whip
  • 2 lbs powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons Dr. Pepper flavoring (optional but really helps pump up the flavor)


  1. Mix cake ingredients together and bake in cupcake pan according to box directions.
  2. While your cupcakes are baking/cooling mix icing ingredients together. I love this icing because it's not to sweet. The longer you mix it the smoother it gets. One of the few recipes I break out the kitchen aid for as I like to mix it for 15 minutes. However a quick mix will suffice.
  3. Ice the tops of the cupcakes and top the cupcake off with half a miniature chocolate.
  4. Perfection 🙂
