Recipe: Skinnifetti Cupcakes (egg-free & low-cal)

My poor husband - he never gets to eat cake (egg allergy) so I'm always looking for ways to give him the joys of egg-filled desserts - without killing him of course. I found a great recipe to make him Skinny Funfetti Cupcakes using just two ingredients! 

The folks at Tomoson sent me these Sunsella Little Gems Silicone Baking Cups to try out - so it seemed like a good time. Are they not the BEST colors??? They're so cute!! I could totally imagine using these for a kids birthday party!

There are 12 in a box - so I had to supplement with some parchment papers as well. I did not spray these with cooking spray (but I should have) - just a tip for you. Man they are just so fun!!! Those colors!

 Here's everything you need for these skinny cupcakes (thanks Six Sisters Stuff) - it's pretty complex - cake mix and diet soda. If you're using a light cake - use a clear diet soda (Sprite/7Up), if you're using a dark cake (chocolate) - use a dark diet soda (Dr Pepper/Diet Coke).

I was a little curious how it would mix up - but it came out the same normal texture as cake batter should be! I did pour it sort of slowly to minimize the fizz.

Then I dolloped away with an ice cream scoop. The silicone baking cups are just the right size for the muffin tins. The batter was thick so it was easy to scoop.

The cupcakes turned out great! I was a little curious since I'd never tried this before. Larry, on the other hand, was drooling - HE WAS GOING TO GET TO EAT CAKE!

Thanks again to Tomoson and Sunsella for these adorable silicone baking cups - I'll definitely be using them again!
