Soda Shop Cupcakes
The perfect elixir for a sweet tooth and must-have bonding time at the cabin

Anyone who loves escaping to the cabin understands the allure of slowing
down to let life’s little pleasures become the weekend’s main events.
That’s why cabin country may be one of the best places left to find a
bona fide soda fountain, still staffed by soda jerks proudly serving
bubbling soda-and-ice-cream drinks to visitors spinning on chrome stools
along the back wall of a local mom-and-pop drugstore. If you find one
of these gems, it’s a great treat to share something sweet and fizzy
with your favorite people.

These tasty cupcakes were
inspired by the flavor experimentation made possible by the array of
syrups, ice creams, tonics, and toppings available in classic soda
shops. But the recipes were designed with modern speed in mind (we won’t
take away your Martha Stewart points for using cake mix!), so turn on
some old-timey music, get out your mixer, grab the nearest half-bored
child, and have fun concocting!
