Ingredients
  • 2 cups Coca-Cola, separated
  • 3 cups flour
  • 2 tsps. baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt (plus an additional pinch)
  • 5 cups unsalted butter, room temperature, separated
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 tsps vanilla, separated
  • 1 cup milk
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • gummy cola bottles
Instructions
  1. Heat 1 cup of Coca-Cola in a small pan until boiling, reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes until it's reduced between ½ to ¼ its original amount. Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  3. Place cupcake liners in the cupcake tins (I recommend blue liners for Nuka Cola).
  4. Mix the flour, baking powder, and 1 tsp salt in a bowl. Set aside.
  5. Beat 1 cup butter and 2 cups sugar together in a mixer until light and fluffy.
  6. Add eggs to the butter mixture, mixing fully between each egg. Mix in the vanilla and 3 tbs of the cola reduction.
  7. Mix in half of the dry ingredients into the wet mixture. Add half of the milk and mix. Continue with the rest of the dry ingredients and milk. Make sure everything is fully mixed.
  8. Using an ice cream scoop or a large spoon, put one "scoop" of batter in each cupcake liner. They should be ¾ full.
  9. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
  10. Brush the tops of each cupcake with Coca-Cola.
  11. Remove cupcakes from the tins and let cool completely on a wire rack.
  12. Make the frosting: Beat 4 cups of unsalted butter in a mixer until it's fully smooth and light colored, making a "slapping" sound.
  13. Mix in 4 cups of powdered sugar, adding 1 cup at a time until fully mixed.
  14. Add in 1 tsp of vanilla, 1 tbs of Coca-Cola reduction, and a pinch of salt.
  15. Mix everything together on high until frosting is super fluffy.
  16. Place frosting into a piping bag and pipe onto cooled cupcakes. Top each cupcake with a gummy cola bottle.
