Coca-Cola Funfetti Cream Cheese Holiday Cupcakes

This post brought to you by Coca-Cola® and Dollar General. The content and opinions expressed below are that of Monica Wants It.

With the holiday season in full swing I wanted to showcase a two-in-one recipe and tablescape tutorial designed to save you time and money while still providing a ton of holiday sparkle for your table and tummy!

If you’ve never tried the epic Coca-Cola® Easy as Cake! Recipe which mixes 12 oz. of Coca-Cola® with a box of cake mix, boy you are missing out. It is seriously the easiest recipe on the planet, and you can do this with any flavor of cake mix. I promise you the cupcakes are moist, delicious, and you truly can’t tell the difference from using this method or using the traditional water/eggs/oil combo.

I picked up everything I needed for my cupcakes and tablescape at the Dollar General store around the corner from my apartment, so I was able to easily avoid having to go to the grocery store!

Two ingredient Coca-Cola and Funfetti Cream Cheese cupcakes! These are seriously festive and easy to make.

Here’s what you need to create my very festive and merry funfetti and cream cheese cupcakes:


Servings: Makes 12-14 cupcakes
-12 oz. of Coca-Cola®
-1 box of Funfetti Cake Mix
-6-7 Peppermint Sticks snapped in half
-Festive red/green chocolate candies
-1 tub of cream cheese frosting
-Mini Bows (one for each cupcake)

Directions:
-Preheat oven to the temperature stated on the cake mix box. In my case, 350 degrees.
-Mix together all the cake mix and Coca-Cola® in a bowl. It’ll fizz up a bit initially.

-Grab a cupcake baking tin and liners and pour in about three heaping tablespoons into each cup (about 2/3 full)
-Bake according to package instructions (about 19-23 minutes)

Icing & Decorating:
-Once they’re done baking, let them cool for about half an hour before icing
-Use a butter knife to apply cream cheese icing

Supplies:
-12-14 Very Merry Cupcakes
-Tiered server
-16-20 mini ornaments
-Tray
-6-10 large ornaments
-Small tealight holders and tealights

Directions:
-Grab a large tray and place a tiered server on it. This makes your tablescape easily portable!
-Place your cupcakes on the server to allow guests to easily grab cupcakes from any angle

-Fill in the gaps using small ornaments (I chose red and white to play off my mini Coca-Cola® cans)
-Use larger ornaments to fill in the rest of the tray and adorn with a few tealight candles

This looks so pretty from any angle, and it’s a way to have a tablescape that serves a purpose, which is essential for small spaces. I put my cute tiny Coca-Cola® in the tray as well so people can grab a cupcake and some Coca-Cola®!

The metallic mini-bows beautifully reflect the light and the addition of the peppermint sticks in the cupcakes adds a whole second treat within a treat, right?
