Usually when I make cupcakes, I'll use vanilla sponge cake mix to bake it. It's because it tasted much more better without using baking soda. Baking soda will cause it to raise too high and the texture is slightly different.

You can use double acting baking powder in place of baking soda in most recipes.  Although it does not have the same chemical composition as baking soda,
baking powder can be used as a best baking soda substitution in many
recipes. Baking soda comprises sodium bicarbonate, along with an
acidifying agent (cream of tartar) and a drying agent (starch).
Basically, baking powder is made up of baking soda with right
quantities of acidic salts that react with the soda when heated or wet.

Most baking powder used today is double acting, which when added causes
a reaction between the acid salts and baking soda, that releases carbon
dioxide gas. The second reaction occurs when the batter is placed in
the oven which results in expansion of gas cells that causes the batter
to rise.
