Pin a Day: Skinny Funfetti Cupcakes

This weekend we had some friends over to play, so obviously, I had to bake a little bit.  I like to try new recipes and I am working on training my friends to be brutally honest so I know if the recipe is a keeper or not.  I was definitely intrigued by this recipe for Skinny Funfetti Cupcakes.   It was an easy recipe with only 4 ingredients total!  I started by preheating the oven and lining 24 muffin cups with muffin liners (I ended up only having enough batter for 22 cupcakes).  I mixed together Funfetti cake mix and a can of sprite until it was fluffy.  I used portion scoops to fill the muffin liners and baked them about 20-22 minutes.  I allowed the cupcakes to cool completely before mixing the frosting.  To make the frosting, I mixed together a box of vanilla pudding mix and a container of fat free Cool Whip.  I didn’t love the consistency of the frosting so I added some skim milk to thin it out a little bit.  I frosted the cupcakes and the frosting still seemed a bit runny so I put them in the fridge overnight.  We tried them the next day and they were a hit.  The cupcakes were fluffy and moist with the delicious Funfetti flavor. The frosting was very vanilla and was almost more of a thick glaze, but it worked well with the fluffy cupcakes.  Mike is not typically a frosting guy and he liked it.  This was a quick, easy, and slightly healthier version of a Funfetti cupcake, so it was an overall win in my book.  Obviously, this could be altered depending on the flavor of cake and pudding that you might decide to use.
