I saw Hungry Girl’s tip on Food Network

for making Diet Soda Cake

using an 18.25-oz. box moist-style cake mix

and substituting the oil and eggs

with a 12-oz. can diet soda!

This was not a moist-style mix, but I already had it so I thought I would experiment and try it with cupcakes~

Carrot Cake Cupcakes, adding Diet Ginger Ale!

These cupcakes were moist, delicious, and oh so quick & easy~

perfect if you’re in a hurry and need a sweet treat

to take or serve!

I followed the box directions for mixing the package of carrots and raisins included in the Duncan Hines cake mix, with hot tap water and letting stand 5 minutes.

Drain the excess water, mix with the dry ingredients and add your diet soda. You could use diet lemon-lime or club soda~ I thought diet ginger ale would  complement the carrot cake flavor.

Bake 20 – 25 minutes at 350 degrees, following the guidelines for baking cupcakes on the back of the box mix.

Hungry Girl’s flavor suggestions include yellow cake mix + diet cream soda, lemon cake mix + diet lemon-lime soda, and devil’s food cake mix + diet cherry cola.

I sprinkled some chopped pecans on

top of the cream cheese frosting.

If you’re not wild as a March Hare :)

about ready-made frosting,

whip up some Maple Cream Cheese Frosting

for these cupcakes.

Everybunny will enjoy these cupcakes,

that hopped straight from a box

and a can of diet ginger ale!
