Birthday Cupcakes

So as I mentioned before I am trying to slim down for my wedding so I have been working out and watching what I eat and of course my first road block seemed to be my (then) upcoming birthday UNTIL...Danielle at Little Spindle contacted me on gchat and ended up giving me a fab way of making cupcakes that are Weight Watcher use cake mix and diet soda!!  (1 point for regular size cupcakes ... my pan is bigger so mine were 2 points)

So I bought Strawberry cake mix and Diet Rite Raspberry
Soda and Cool Whip for a fab (0 POINT) Frosting!!

You mix the equivalent to 1 can of soda which is 12 oz or 1 1/2 cup.

At first when you start mixing it gets a little frothy from
the carbonation but just keep mixing like normal and in the end
you see ... looks (AND TASTES) like normal cake mix!!

Bake at the temp requested on box and the time amount stated.

Here's how they turn out!

I also put a strawberry on top!

These seriously were AWESOME!  The cake turns out so moist and has
a ton of flavor!  The possibilities are endless.  If you make Chocolate Cake
use a Diet Coke equivalent...check out Danielle's blog at Little Spindle
she just recently tried chocolate and Cherry Coke Zero!  For a lighter cake
use Diet Sprite or Diet 7UP.  If you make some let me know what
combination you used and how they turned out.

I told Danielle that she seriously made my birthday...
with this I was able to have my cake and eat it!!
Thanks again!!


  1. I've seen a few choc cake recipes that use diet coke and I must admit I thought it was strange,, but I think I will try it out :)

  2. That's really awesome. It makes no sense to me that you can make cake from soda. I'll have to give it a try when I have time.

  3. oh woow!
    I've never thought about making cakes with sodas:D
    It looks absolutely great and I love moist cakes x)!!

    I will definitely try this!
    Thanks for sharing with us:)

  4. jummy!

12 Things You Need for Successful Weight Loss

1) Get your head in the game! Weight loss doesn't happen without dedication.  You have to have the mindset to get it done.  I've said in the past that motivation for me is like a light switch ... when it's on it is ON.  Even though motivation is one of the key things you need ~ you also need patience, understanding, time, and willpower.  You have to make a commitment to yourself and stick with it. 2) Track your progress! Tracking keeps you honest to yourself.  Without tracking you can sabotage yourself into overeating.  For example, tell me EVERYTHING you ate on Friday off the top of your head, not so easy right?  Also, there are tons of apps out there that you can quickly track or you can do it the old fashion way of writing it down.  Find what works for you and do it daily.  Also, as a rule I normally track my whole day in the morning.  Breakfast, Lunch, Snack & Dinner.  This also keeps me in track.  I can budget out my day and make changes if things arise or when y…

It's Okay Thursday/Hello Monday #5

... to be so productive that you "forget" to blog!

... to have tire issues on April Fool's Day and have to preface every text with ... this is NOT an April Fool's joke.

... to buy 11 items from the dollar days area at Target in an effort to get organized.  {hmmmm ... maybe a good idea for a blog post.}

... to forget to finish this post!

Hello Monday#5 It is truly amazing how much better my makeup and hair look on the weekend. So if you have never tried Starbucks Via Iced Coffee - I highly recommend. So I just watched Into the Woods over the weekend.  Why did the music sound EXACTLY like Sweeney Todd? Seriously I even googled that sh!t and came up with nothing. Why is it on weekends I am all about managing my down time  like it was my last meal or something.  Um no, I cannot do XYZ,  that is a total lack of consideration to my weekend of staying at  home and doing nothing for 48 hours straight.  
How are you doing today?
