Rainy Day Skinny Cupcakes

What's better then sleeping in on a Sunday morning?  Sleeping in on a Sunday morning to find that it's raining!  I was so thrilled to have a cozy day in and it gave me a great excuse to spend the some time in the kitchen trying out this recipe I found on Fashion Meets Food.  It is rediculously simple and takes away more than half of your normal cupcake calories, cuz lord knows my hips don't need more of those.  

You can find the recipe here and I'm sure, like me, you're going to think "you want me to put 7-Up in my cupcakes...not happening, but that's for the laugh."  But believe me they taste just like real cupcakes and the texture is fluffy and pure happiness.  The frosting doesn't taste exactly like the real thing but for almost no calories it's great. 

I baked mine for about 19 minutes and they were great!

 I was shocked by how good they are!

 Mac was having fun with the cupcakes. 

Sneaking a taste. 

A cupcake from me to you.  I can't wait to try more combinations, next week I may try something with chocolate cake. 

P.S. I got the cupcake wrappers at Target, aren't they fun!


  1. These simply look delightful. Lots of substitutions like in vegan cupcakes, I presume? Either doesn't have to be bogged down with calories to be good!

  2. Haha! You two are just so cute. :)

  3. Seriously, is that sweater from Target? If so I have the same one.

    That's twice now we've bought the same sweater.

    We are the same.

  4. Robin, they are so easy just cake mix and diet 7-Up those are the only ingredients.

    Ciara, thanks sweetie!

    Lauren, yes it is because we're the same person :D
