Skinny Funfetti Cupcakes

I am a huge fan of cupcakes and if I am going to make a healthier version I want them to taste like the real thing and these definitely do. These cupcakes only take two ingredients, and honestly you will not believe how moist and rich they taste.

Skinny Funfetti Cupcakes
1 box Duncan Hines Confetti Cake
you can use any cake brand I just think Duncan Hines and the diet pop taste best
1 (12 oz.) can diet cherry 7-up (or any diet pop of your choice)
For light cakes use a light colored diet pop
For darker ones such as chocolate use a darker diet pop ex. diet dr. pepper
• Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees, and line (2 (12 count) muffin tins) with cupcake liners.
• If you are using anything other then a 12 oz. can measure out 1.5 cups of pop.
• Beat cake mix and pop together until smooth and creamy. 
• Pour cake mix into lined muffin tin, filling each with 1/3 cup of batter.
• Place the cupcakes in the oven and bake 18-24 minutes; or until a toothpick in the center comes out clean.

• NOTE: If you have questions and would like me to respond you need to leave your email address. I cannot respond to an anonymous comment. Thanks :]

  1. I saw a strawberry version of these on pinterest & then made an orange soda version… they are delish! Was wondering about the calorie info & also if you could use regular. You answered all my questions!-caroline @ c.w.frosting


  2. Just made these with Pillsbury Sugar Free Classic yellow cake mix with Sprite zero. (And even LESS calories!!) The cupcakes are AMAZING!!! So light and fluffy! I added the Fat Free Sugar Free pudding mix powder directly to the lite Cool Whip. Was I supposed to make the pudding first then mix the finished pudding into the Cool Whip? The frosting turned out great the way I tried it but was a little gritty. Still blown away by this whole idea!!! Melissa


  3. Hello, I have my first batch of these in the oven now and I just have a question. When you said to fill the cupcake liners using a 1/3 of a cup measure did you mean fill them a 1/3 of the way full? I used a 1/3 cup measure and I only got 12 cupcakes? I can't wait to taste them and share them with my co-workers. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe.


  4. This is my question too about the icing! I have made another recipe using this type of icing but you used the actual pudding mixed with cool whip not just the powder content so I'm not sure which route to go???Any response to would be helpful! I plan on making them tomorrow evening!


  5. I'm not sure about this recipe but when I have made this type of icing in the past, I used instant pudding mix added directly to the cool whip (in powder form).


  6. I am wondering about the icing… Do you make the Pudding according to directions on box, then mix with the cool whip OR mix the DRY pudding mix with the cool whip??? I'm wanting to make these for my mom this weekend and for my kids next week… Thank you!


  7. I've made these!! They are amazing!! They're really good if you use a white cake mix and grape or orange pop!!


  8. Other recipes I have made with this type of frosting or filling, call for first making the instant pudding then folding it into the cool whip!


  9. These are great, made them for my husband an he can't believe how moist these are… new family favorite!


  10. However, should you wear belly button rings frequently,you need to understand a few things. The cost of your respective custom bridal jewelry will probably be based on a couple of things namely design, materials and time.You may also pass it on o your children as a gift from you.


  11. Why can't you use regular soda?? The artificial sweetner in diet soda makes me very ill. Please let me know!! Thank you Connie


  12. So I just made these cupcakes according to your recipe, followed the directions TO A TEE, and they turned out like crap!!!! The cupcakes are so soft and have no body to them, that when I tried taking the wrapper off one, the whole thing just completely disintegrated. I'm beyond disappointed. Sorry love, but this recipe is no bueno.
