Diet Soda Cake with Pudding Frosting - Recipe

Today is my husband's birthday and our son insisted that Daddy has cupcakes for his birthday. He wanted me to go to the store and buy pre-made cupcakes and I just was not having any of that! Then I remembered the diet soda cake that has been around forever. It's super simple.

1 box cake mix
12 oz diet soda
2 c skim milk
1 box (1 oz) sugar free fat free instant pudding

Decide what kind of cake you're doing (rectangular, rounds, cupcakes) and read the baking instructions on the box of cake mix. Don't worry about all the other ingredients and prep - you don't need them. All you do is empty your mix into a large bowl and fluff out the lumps. Slowly pour in your soda and mix well. Pour the mix into your pan(s) and bake according to the directions.

While the cake is in the oven, mix your pudding and milk and refrigerate. When the cake is done, let it cool. When it's completely cooled, spread the pudding over it. You'll need to refrigerate the cake.

I used a white cake mix with orange soda. I got 12 good sized cupcakes out of this, but if you're doing a larger cake, like a 9x13, you can probably get more servings. It's about 45 points for the whole thing. If you do 12 cupcakes with the pudding frosting, it's 3.8 points apiece.
