    Ooh I didn't know you could do this. You could also try using those zero calorie cokes and sprite. I have never tasted the coke one but I swear the sprite one taste just like the real thing and it has zero calories!

      I love Sprite Zero! I've never tried the Coke one either. I first heard of this cake like 5 years ago, so that wasn't out yet. Good call!

        I've had the diet coke cake and it tastes really good. You can "frost" the cake with fat free cool whip.

          Have you tried the sugar free Cool Whip? It's really good. I like it much better than the Fat Free kind (for some reason it tastes like marshmellow to me). I want to try this now. Maybe I'll make it this weekend. Mmm, now I'm thinking about Cool Whip. I can eat that stuff by the spoonful.

              Uh oh, too much cake talk. There's an Easy Bake Oven in my cubicle that has been recalled...I can't tell you how much I want to break it open and make the chocolate cake that's on the box. Is that sad?

                ~Sarah your FI is so amazing! Isn't he the best FI ever? See how supportive he is?

                ~Jill there is a way to make cake less fattening. Instead of oil you use fat free apple sauce. And only use egg whites instead of the whole egg and mix it with the cake mix. If you do it from scratch and need to use sugar, only use brown sugar. You know what I would do? Ask Steve to get you a cupcake instead. This way there is only one thing you can eat and the entire cake won't be staring at you in the face, tempting you to eat the whole thing!

                Thanks ladies for all of the ideas!

                Well, before I posted here DH asked what kind of cake I wanted and I told him I wanted a chocolate one from the bakery with the sweet frosting, not the crappy whipped frosting. I was very specific.

                Well, after I posted here about that I ended up telling him not to get me a cake. We have a b-day party to go to sunday and another one next sunday, so if I decide to eat cake one of those days, I don't want to eat it again on monday, not to mention if he gets me a cake, there's only 3 of us, so there will be leftovers and that means I'll end up eating it all damn week!!

                He thinks its a trick and I'm going to be mad when I don't get a cake, lol!

                also, I have heard of the cake & dc recipe, but I also had a recipe to use reduced sugar cake mix and a can of pumpkin. I made them last night, as cupcakes and they are SO good!! I think they are about 2 points each and I bought some cool whip for topping.

                The top of them is kind of hard, but the inside is super fudgy and moist, they're really good!

                      Is it ok to join in on this thread for the inspiration? I just started on Jenny Craig almost a week ago and I have lost 3#'s so far. I am just amazed how well everyone is doing. Keep up the great job.
