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 friendly...you 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 too...lol!!
