    1 cup vanilla soy milk
    2 tsp vanilla extract

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 F.

    So, what is "light" about these cupcakes? 3/4 cup of vegetable oil (60 cals per tiny cupcake) and 70 cals of fondant per cupcake does not equal "light" !! Regular milk would make more tender cupcakes without so much oil, and it would be more nutritious. - 4/1/14

    Wow - Eliminate the frosting and the candy coated eggs from the original version and market it as slimmed down. This is why I don't make spark recipes. Crap. - 4/1/14

    do believe I can cut calories down more by replacing sugar with Splenda and the oil down to applesauce unsweetened, will give this recipe a try doing it my way. I just cant see where this one is slimmed down that is a fourth of my days goals in calories. - 4/8/14

    I would replace the sugar with Splenda. I'm going to see if using two eggs whites with two whole eggs would work to cut down on the cholesterol. I'd like to try experimenting, using almond milk instead of soy, but I'm not sure if that would work? - 4/1/14
