    This is the way to make cakes if you really have to have a cake fix. Yum. I have tried diet cherry soda to white cake. It is good. Try chocolate cake with 7-up and sugar free chocolate pudding with sliced strawberries on top. Delish! - 7/26/07

    I've done this before and its great. I've found that adding a small carton of egg beaters helps keep the cake together and only adds a few extra calories

    I was skeptical, but this were very good! They were very moist and we found that they didn't hold together as well as the regular, nor did they rise as much, but they tasted delicious! I can't wait to try other flavor combinations. - 4/21/08

    My college-age daughter made this as a sheet cake. It said to bake 30 min on the box, and it needs it. It was great and we used orange diet soda and a chocolate cake mix. - 8/21/07

    I've been experimenting with this lately and it works well with muffin and brownie mix as well, but they do want to stick hard to the pan so lining with waxed paper or Really stick-proofing the pan is best, non-stick spray wont cut it unless you Heavily apply. - 2/27/08

    Did it with low fat brownie mix and Dr. Pepper. Used a small, deep pan and it took twice as long as the directions on the box state. It's very yummy and moist but I don't think I'm really coming out ahead because there are 20 grams of sugar/serving in the brownie mix! I'll try sugar free mix next. - 3/19/09

    We have made this diet cake recipe many times.
    It is fun to mix and match flavors of cake mixes and diet soda. Like a white cake with diet orange soda. Or pineapple cake with diet orange. Give your favorites a try. Also...you can use cool whip lite instead of frostings to save some calories. - 7/26/07

  • I've always had fun with these. As others have noted, however, the texture can be very strange and the cake very easily crumbles apart. Adding an egg to the mix adds negligible calories per serving, and the protein helps stabilize it all! - 9/19/13

  • Is this a mini cupcake recipe? A heaping tablespoon of batter doesn't seem to be enough for a regular sized cupcake tin...and from the comments it looks as though these don't rise the way normal cupcakes do. Suggestions please :) - 2/28/10

  • These were pretty good. Everyone could tell that there was something different about them, but there weren't any complaints per se. I'll probably make them again because 'diet' desserts will obviously never taste as good as the real thing & these tasted good enough to at least give it 1 more shot - 2/8/10
