Portions: The Cupcakes Are Calling Me

By VH Melville
One of my biggest problems is cake. I sort of see cake as one great big delicious serving. That is why simply making smaller cupcakes and mini bunt cakes has been helpful to me.

I stick them un-iced in the freezer. I use regular pudding in the mix cake mix. I make them lighter by using 2 egg whites and 12 ounces of water. Bake like the box says. They do not need oil to even come out.

To frost: You can use pudding, frosting. Sugar free jam, and coolwhip free mixed with sugar free pudding mix.

What a great idea....I'm going to try this. I've written down your substitutes. Are you adding regular pudding to a regular cake mix? How long are can you freeze them?

I add nothing but water and the egg whites. Most cheap mixes have pudding in the mix. I bet a mix without pudding would be even lighter but I haven’t tried it.
I use freezer bags made for freezing food. I have had them up to two or three weeks but I am not sure how long they last after that. I don’t freeze them frosted but the coolwhp free SF pudding mix icing stores okay in the fridge. I don’t know when it goes bad.
