My son’s 2nd birthday is just around the corner – yikes! There is so much party planning to do and I am trying to get everything in order as early as I can. But, as a new mom, I am still trying to watch my weight, and we all know how healthy cake is for us, right? ;)
Crazy enough, I kept seeing the idea to replace oil and eggs with diet soda. Seriously! That’s all it takes to reduce the amount of fat and calories significantly, and the cupcakes still turn out amazingly moist and delicious! They’re practically guilt-free! Another bonus to this recipe is that the elimination of eggs makes the uncooked mix much safer for you or your children to taste. My son was so excited to help me clean off the mixer for the first time.

Please note, others have shared this idea before and I cannot locate where it originated, so I am simply sharing with my readers to give them a new twist on their typical cupcake recipe!
