Did you know that if you add soft drinks to your cake batter, it will make your cake delightfully airy and moist? This fun baking hack may come as a surprise to you, but not to Café Valley. In fact, they’ve been producing a range of soda cakes for years! And one of their most buzzed about offerings is the Dr Pepper Cake. How we slept on this delicious, soda-flavored cake for years while knowing about the brand’s exclusive birthday cake-flavor is beyond us. But now we know it exists and we want it for our birthday!
The cake’s creator, Café Valley, has been producing delicious pastries for in-store bakeries since 1987. Then, in 2012, the pastry purveyor surprised everyone when they introduced their very first soda cake that had 7UP mixed into the batter. Since then, Café Valley has doled out a range of irresistible cakes infused with familiar fizzy flavors. It was at the International Dairy Deli Bakery Association (IDDBA) show in Anaheim, California in June 2017 where the world got its first glimpse and taste of the Dr Pepper treat. At the unveiling event, Brian Owens, Café Valley’s CEO said,
“Our partnership with Dr Pepper will guarantee customers the real, genuine soda taste, just as delicious as our other fun soda cake flavors. The cake captures premium ingredients and the high-quality taste our customers have come to expect. We look forward to bringing the latest delightful flavor and enjoyable experience home to your family.”
Café Valley offers a line of tasty soda ring cakes

Since launching in 2017, the cake has become a mainstay offering from the purveyor. And everyone who’s ever tried it loves this soda-flavored ring cake from Café Valley. According to samplers, the cake has a moist texture. And if the thought of having a sugary soda mixed into the cake batter has you a bit worried about it being too sweet… don’t be. Café Valley kept its sweetness levels at a moderate level, so you won’t have to worry about anyone having a sugar rush after enjoying a slice or two of the cake. It’s also worth mentioning that the Dr Pepper flavor is very much present without being too overpowering. The cake is topped with a nice drizzle of icing.

You can find their products at grocers like Walmart, HEB, Safeway, Meijer and Kroger. And aside from the Dr Pepper flavor, you can also get bakes that taste like A&W Root Beer, Orange Crush and 7UP!
These soda cakes will make for an interesting choice for an office party or a birthday bash! It’s certainly a refreshing break from all those chocolate and vanilla cakes we’ve been having all our lives. So hurry over to your favorite grocer and check out their pastry section!
