Lightened up vanilla Cupcakes

First heres a few recipes I tried out from last weeks link up -

 chicken Gyros- My whole family LOVED this! Well flavored, very fresh tasting and super filling! -My Road to Savings

Green soup-loved the sour cream mixture topping with some crackers-Mama Maven

Turkey meatloaf w/feta & sundried tomatos-I'm very picky about my meatloaf but this was by far the best flavored meatloaf I have ever had.  Messy Jess

 Kale chips-I would eat these over regular chips any day! YUM! Once a mom always a cook

Now onto dessert! My sister Lauralyn is a big fan of cooking light. A lot of what she makes or her inspiration comes from recipes in those magazines or cookbooks. These cupcakes were inspired by this Caramel layered cake recipe.

This whip cream is the best! Only 5 calories per two tablespoons, no fat and only 1 carb! Taste amazing you can't even tell the difference!

The cake recipe can be found here
