Skinny Funfetti Cupcake Recipe (Vanilla or Chocolate)
inspired by Six Sisters STUFF Cookbook

1 (15.25 oz) pkg Pillsbury Funfetti cake mix
1 (12 oz) can of Sprite Zero
1 (8 oz) container fat-free nondairy whipped topping
1 (1.5 oz) pkg vanilla instant pudding

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line 24 cupcake tins with paper liners. In a large bowl, combine dry cake mix and Sprit. Continue to mix until the batter is smooth without lumps. Pour approximately 1/4 cup of batter into every cupcake liner. Bake 20 minutes. Let cool.

When cupcakes are completely cooled, use an electric mixer to combine whipped topping and pudding until smooth. Spread over cupcakes. Makes 2 dozen.

Kitchen Notes: For the Skinny Funfetti cucake - my store did not carry the Funfetti cake mix so I just used a regular white or yellow cake mix and added in 3/4 cup of sprinkles to the batter. I always make half vanilla and half chocolate. To do this, just stir in 1/2 cup cocoa powder to the cake mix after doing the first 12 cupcakes as vanilla. Frosting tip: We use different sprinkles for vanilla and chocolate. That way we can tell which ones are which.

9 step pinwheel craft tutorial

1- Get any size square paper and draw a line from corner to corner.
2-Draw a small circle in the middle of the paper where the corner lines meet. 
4-Cut up to that circle on each line. Don't cut into the circle.
5-Take a pencil and make a small dot at the bottom left of each triangle. Make your first dot, rotate the square and repeat until you have 4.
6-Use a pencil to punch a hole through each small dot or just use a tiny hole punch. 
7-Use the same small punch and punch in the center of the square (right in the middle of the circle). Punch a hole in a straw tip, too.
8-Get a fastener and put through one hole at a time of the 4 corner holes. 
9-Push the fastener and paper to the bottom and go through that hole. Attach the straw on the back and push the fastener through and close off.

That easy! For the cupcakes I used a 3 x 3 size square.
