I made these cupcakes last week and the recipe could not get any simpler, and its low fat! Who could argue with that???
1 packaged white cake mix
12 oz Sprite Zero
Gel food coloring
8 oz light or fat-free whipped topping
1 oz fat-free sugar-free pudding mix
Approximately 16 cupcakes
Now to prepare the cupcakes:
Preheat oven according to package directions
Line a muffin pan with paper liners
Mix cake mix with the soda until incorporated
Divide the batter evenly into as many bowls as needed to make your desired colors (I made 5 different colors) and use gel food coloring to color the batter
Now using a spoon or tablespoon, spoon the batter into the paper liners one color at a time (I used the ROY G BIV color scheme minus the colors I didn't make) until all colors have been used
Don't worry about smoothing the colors into even layers, it will still look cool no matter how you decide to slop it in there.
Bake according to package directions and be sure to do the toothpick test (insert a toothpick into the cupcake and if it is clean upon removal your cupcakes are done!) to make sure they are done
Remove from oven and place onto a cooling rack
Now for the Frosting:
Whip together the whipped topping and pudding mix until well incorporated and fluffy.
After the cupcakes have cooled pipe frosting onto each cupcake.
These were super fun and they taste great! I'm sure they would be a huge hit with children.
