bump for all these awesome ideas! It is going to be harder to find some things (like diet cream soda and diet cherry dr pepper in canada) but I really want to try some of these!

thanks to the creative geniuses on here!

You can also make a cobbler:

Put fruit in a pan, top with cake mix and pour a can of sprite over the top.

I don't completely agree with this, we don't have to give up anything to lose weight, but we do have to learn to eat things in moderation, so I say give it a try....let us know how they turn out!

Hmmm...actually, you don't have to give up anything. I've lost 22 pounds in 3.5 months and eat cake and ice cream almost every night. It's all about choices. "I'd rather have this than that." and "It's not worth it." Cake with my husband after dinner is "worth" it to me, and I stay within my calorie limits.

Diet sodas are bad for you. Your body was not intended to ingest chemicals and artificial sweeteners.

Make something natural, you know, the way NATURE intended us to eat.

I have used a chocolate cake mix and club soda before and it was really good. It had a cake-like brownie texture. I have also used a can of pumpkin with spice cake mix and that was also very good. I've never made these in cupcake form...only in 9x13 pans.

so let me get this right (I'm gonna sound super mean and I'm ok with that),
You would rather put artificial sweetener, color, flavor, phosphates and God knows what other chemicals into your body INSTEAD of a whole natural egg and substitute the oil with unsweetened applesuce??? If you are worried about the FAT in the egg then use the white only.
Eat a smaller piece of cake and put REAL ingredients into it! I'm sorry but If I eat cake I'm gonna make it worth it! I wan the real deal with eggs and butter that way the craving is totally satisfied.
Eat real feed not chemicals.

I tried a WW recipe years ago and it was great. It seems to get even more moist after a day or two of sitting in the fridge.

Weight Watchers Pistachio Cake

CAKE
18 1/4 ounces white cake mix
3 egg whites
2 1/2 cups diet 7-Up

FROSTING
1 (1 ounce) package sugar-free instant pistachio pudding
8 ounces fat-free cool whip (small)
1 cup diet 7-Up

Directions:
1 Mix all ingredients together.

2 Spray 13 x 9 pan.

3 Bake at 350°F for 30 - 35 minutes. Test cake top by lightly touching the center which should feel slightly firm and will slightly spring back to the touch.

4 (Cool cake completely before frosting.).

5 Mix together frosting ingredients and spread over cake.

6 Refrigerate until ready to eat and hold in the fridge for up to two weeks!

7 Enjoy!

We use soda, cake mixes, and a can of pie filling to make (in a dutch oven) coblers and such when while out camping. Never tried it with diet soda though.

I'm sure the sugars, fat, and most of the calories are eliminated during the cooking process.

It totally works! I don't know about cupcakes, but I know it works for a cake.

I made this with yellow cake mix and diet ginger ale! I'm not a huge fan of the 'fake' ingredients, but the cupcakes were great! No one knew smile
