Birthday Cupcakes for The Mailman!
Happy Monday, UFG'ers! Today is the Mailman's birthday, so in honor of, cupcakes!
I had doubts about this recipe working - I know a lot of you have probably seen it before. Diet soda with cake mix - a WW classic. I lightened it up even more by using Devil's Food Cake mix and man - they were delish! I used a non fat cream cheese frosting, but next time I make them, I'd probably skip the frosting and just add some fat free Reddi Whip on the top. Chocolatey and yummy! Recipe after the jump:
12oz diet cream soda
1 box Devil's Food Cake Mix
8oz Fat free cream cheese
2 tbsp Brummel and Brown spread
12 Splenda packets
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp Vanilla
Mix the soda and cake mix and whisk until the lumps are gone. Separate mix into a cupcake tin equally and follow baking directions on the box.
For the icing, bring all ingredients to room temp. Mix cream cheese, butter, splenda, sugar and vanilla with a hand mixer until fluffy. Keep in refrigerator to set until cupcakes are cooled completely.
