Spring Cupcakes

Cheat Day Cafe posted a 'sweet' recipe for low/no fat cupcakes that will fit into any spring diet plan. To celebrate the first day of spring today - i had to bring in some treats for my office. I decided to go with the "lite" version of cupcakes - because the office is very good about trying my little experiments and there are a lot of people who are watching their food intake right now.

So - Key Lime Cupcakes!
Find the posting here: http://cheatdaycafe.blogspot.com/2009/03/cupcake-controversy.html

The ingredients are so simple!
1 box of cake mix
2 egg whites
10 oz. liquid from either diet soda or unset jello

For my Key Lime Cupcakes I used lime sugar-free jello and the juice of 2 key limes. They looked so pretty! For the frosting, I whipped together powdered sugar, milk, and green food coloring. JI made it thin enough to let me just dip the tops in the frosting.

Super easy - and pretty tasty!

I guess I took some pictures in the dark - sorry!

What a great, easy recipe! And I love the shiny little dollops on top - they're like buttons!
