Peep Cupcakes

I had to bring a dessert to the family Easter dinner. Great for a girl watching what she is eating. Right? Well, I saw some cupcakes that inspired me in this post because I thought my kids would love them. I wanted to make those cute little cupcakes a little more Weight Watchers friendly for me too. So, I made Diet Soda Cake Cupcakes and used the new Reduced Sugar frosting, I think it is made by Pilsbury, because they were going to be outside and I could not refrigerate. Then, I added the colored sugars and the Peeps with a toothpick. The kids loved them and they were really good! I like the chocolate cake with a Diet Dr. Pepper Cherry! Yum! I also gave you the recipe I usually use for frosting. The orginal post also has a great recipe for cupcakes and icing.

Diet soda cake
1 box cake mix(I used Pilsbury Reduced Sugar Devil's Food)
1 12-oz diet soda
2 egg whites for better texture
(Can make into cupcakes)
Points will depend on the cake mix, the frosting, and the decorations you use.

1 (8 oz) package fat free cream cheese
1 (8 oz) tub fat free whipped topping
1/2 cup Splenda
1/2 tsp. vanilla
In a medium bowl, beat cream cheese until soft. Add whipped topping, Splenda, and vanilla. Mix until smooth.
