This weekend my family is celebrating my Dad’s Birthday! His…30th….Birthday…yeah..Ha! Every year he requests an Italian Cream Cake as his birthday treat, and every year we scour the stores to find one. (They are actually pretty hard to find around here!). But truth be told we shouldn’t be getting him this indulgent cake every year. Why? Well, he is diabetic. Now you see the problem right? I didn’t want to deprive my dad of his favorite cake, so I thought this year I would try to make some Skinny Italian Cream Cheese Frosting Cupcakes! Are cupcakes good for you? Nope. Are these cupcakes better for you than a big slice of traditional Italian Cream Cake? Absolutely! Continue reading

I wanted to make a recipe that even my nine year old son would think was cool. When I made this glow in the dark frosting  I was pleasantly surprised that it tasted good and was really simple to do. I was upset that I didn’t know about this chemical reaction earlier because I am positive I could have made this recipe more famous while attending college but anyway I figure sharing it on the internet would be a great way to make sure others get to enjoy the glow in the dark cupcakes.
