Celebration Cupcakes With Fluffy White Frosting!

Skinny Celebration Party Cupcakes

 

I recently made these celebration cupcakes for a friend’s birthday. I have a mommy group that I attend monthly and when it’s someone’s special day, we always bring a cake or cupcakes. It was my turn so of course I couldn’t go out and buy a cake or cupcakes. We usually let ourselves go off our “diets” and have a special treat, but why should we have to?

To say the least, these were a huge hit with the girls. I brought copies of the recipe with me because I knew they would want one. If I am showing off, I can’t help it. LOL! They really tastes rich and fattening but they are certainly not! Try this amazing cupcake and let me know what you think.

Celebration Cupcakes With Fluffy White Frosting!

Makes 18 large cupcakes

Ingredients:

For the cake batter:

  • 1 box Betty Crocker Super Moist cake mix, Party rainbow chip flavor
  • 1/4 cup Egg Beaters or any store brand egg substitute
  • 1 four ounce jar baby applesauce
  • 2 tbsp butter, melted and cooled
  • 12 ounces plain seltzer
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 tsp baking powder

For the fluffy frosting:

  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • 2 tsp powdered egg whites
  • 2-3 tbsp water
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • pinch salt
  • 2-4 tbsp sifted powdered sugar if desired.
  • Decorative sprinkles, optional

 

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees, place cupcake liners in muffin pan and set aside until ready to fill.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, place all the ingredients in and with a rubber spatula, mix well. Make sure you get to the bottom of the pan and bring up all the dry mix to incorporate into the wet ingredients.
  3. Now switch over to a hand mixer and mix on medium speed for 2 minutes. The batter should be nice and fluffy.
  4. Place in fridge for 20 minutes.
  5. Take out of fridge and with an ice cream scooper or a 1/3 cup measure, fill each cup. You should have enough for 18 cupcakes.
  6. Bake for about 15 to 20 minutes or until a wooden skewer or toothpick comes out with dry crumbs or clean. Make sure you turn the pan around after 10 minutes for even baking.
  7. Place on a cooling rack. Let cool for about 20 minutes in the pan then take out and place each cup on the cooling rack.
  8. At this time, start your frosting. In a large mixing bowl, add your ingredients except for the powdered sugar. Mix with an electric mixer until thick and fluffy. Do a taste test and see if you want to add the powdered sugar. This is a personal taste. Sometimes I add the sugar and other times I feel it’s sweet enough. Either way, they will be delish!
  9. You will have plenty of frosting to frost each cupcake. Now sprinkle to decorate if you want and take a big bite and have fun! YUM!
