Diet Soda Cupcakes

Yes, you did read that right. I promise it's not as odd as it sounds! It was super easy too! Thanks to Skinny Taste for this awesome low calorie/fat recipe. Since it was Chandler's birthday this week, I was trying to plan/figure out what I would do for his birthday. Obviously we'd have cake from the store, but I wanted something I could eat and not feel guilty about. I am telling you you'd have no clue the soda I used was Diet Cherry Dr. Pepper in a German Chocolate Cake! We topped the cupcakes with light cool whip and 1/4 of a dark chocolate Reese's Peanut Butter Cup. Be creative!

So I looked at Gina's Skinny Recipes and found Diet Soda Cake, omitting all oil and egg yolks and subbing in diet soda. Sounds easy enough and it was, give it a shot. Oh and the kids loved them, and so did the adults!
