Inauguration Cupcakes

Well, I did it! I made my Inauguration cupcakes for tomorrow! They came out GREAT!!! The blue wasn't as dark as I wanted, and the girls of course had to have PINK cupcakes and not blue because "blue is for boys" lol, but I got them done.

I also made cupcakes for Rodney to take into work with him. And, for myself (and for everyone else) I made the cupcakes a little more 'calorie/diet friendly'. The cupcakes are 93 calories each (add a few more calories for the frosting though). I found a recipe the other day to use soda/pop with cake mix to make the cupcakes. Very odd I thought but heck if it saves me calories and I'm able to have one without the guilt, I'm all for it.

So today I bought 2 different cake mixes, one vanilla and the other chocolate. We decided to use original citrus Fresca with the vanilla and to use Cherry Coke Zero with the chocolate. The recipe is really basic:

Easy Cupcakes

1 box of cake mix (your choice of flavor)
12 oz. diet soda
2 egg whites

Mix all ingredients into a bowl and mix. Pour into cupcake paper (which have been sprayed with PAM) and cook in the oven @ 350 until done.

Very simple, very easy, and VERY yummy!! I must say I'm proud of my creations.

I'm now off to bed... I probably won't be around much tomorrow as I'll be glued to CNN most of the day, cleaning up and getting ready to head to Canada in a few days as well. So ENJOY the day tomorrow, witness history, and witness the start of great beginnings for this country!
