Skinny Funfetti Cupcakes

When I saw these Skinny Funfetti Cupcakes on Pinterest the other day, I knew I had to make them.  I mean frosted cupcakes for 110 calories each?  Sign me up.  After a quick trip to Target for supplies (Sprite Zero, Vanilla Pudding Jell-O and Cool Whip), I enlisted the help of my favorite baking buddies and we got to work.  I had some Funfetti cake-mix (bought on Target super clearance of course), so we didn’t need that.  L is used to make the recipe on the box (he “reads” it to me), so he was a little annoyed that we didn’t use the normal stuff (he likes to crack the eggs).  The revised recipe was SO EASY:

Cupcake Ingredients (makes 24 cupcakes):
~1 pkg. Pillsbury Funfetti Cake Mix (just the powder, not the recipe on the box)
~1 (12 ounce) can Sprite Zero
I’m sure you don’t need me to tell you how to mix the Sprite Zero and Funfetti powde together.  Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.  I should mention that when I read the directions on Six Sisters’ Stuff’s website, I read that I should fill the cups “1/4 full”.  Umm, no, it said fill with 1/4 cup of batter.  Totally different.  That’s why my cupcakes are so little.  Just fill like normal and you’ll be fine ;).

While the cupcakes are cooling, you can make the frosting.

Frosting Ingredients:
~1 (8 ounce) container Fat Free Cool Whip (I use Lite but only because Target didn’t have fat free)
~1 (1.5 ounce) pkg. Fat Free Vanilla Jello Instant Pudding (just the powder, not the recipe on the box)
All you gotta do is mix together and boom, you are done.  I mixed it by hand, but only because I realized my hand mixer was broken (WTF) when I went to use it.

The verdict?  YUMMY!  Sure they don’t taste exactly like Funfetti cupcakes, but did you really expect them to?  L wasn’t thrilled with them, but I think that’s because he couldn’t eat the batter like he normally does.  He never really eats the final products.  I fed one to his BFF and he LOVED it.  I will definitely be making these again!

    This is pure brilliance. I’d love to try…but artificial sweetener prods give me headaches 🙁
