A few weeks back, I posted on Facebook asking for a dessert suggestion for Labor Day. I gave you guys the choice of picking between a Red Velvet Cake with Cheesecake Pudding and Skinny Funfetti Cupcakes.
Many of you chose the Funfetti to begin with…. and the Red Velvet fans came out of the woodwork!! So, we all know how the story ended… I made the Red Velvet. And, I even made it a second time.
Just the same, I’ve been thinking about those cupcakes… wondering how they tasted. And, I always like an excuse to bake.
As I was meal planning for Virginia, I immediately knew that we were going to be making them. Afterall, I had a 9 year old and a 6 year old that I would be cooking for that I KNEW would JUST LOVE THEM. So, that’s exactly what we did.
The premise of the cake is very similar to the red velvet and the diet cake I made for my birthday. It uses a diet soda instead of eggs and oil. Trust me, you won’t miss those caloric ingredients at all.

6. Spread over cooled cupcakes. Makes enough frosting for 24 cupcakes.
7. Taste test these bad boys, and share with the family.
Here’s what I love about these cupcakes…. EVERYTHING. The frosting was so different than what I’m used to. Less sweet, and more fluffy, and just so darn easy to make! The funfetti was a good time, as was the sprinkles. Seriously… these were awesome and I definitely recommend them!
