Sometimes you just need to have your cake and eat it too! After experimenting in the kitchen with my daughter the other day, we came up with this cupcake recipe that is not only “Rita Friendly”- yes, I ate 2, and felt no remorse, no bloating and not sugar crash (there is no sugar). The great thing was that my daughter loved them, and so did my husband! Eat them at room temperature and the frosting will be nice and creamy. Alternately, my hubby likes them right out of the fridge in which the frosting is hard like a fondant! Perfect for Easter! Let me know how you like them!
