Our Anniversary Cake

by Sarah

Today marks our 5-year wedding anniversary! Wow, how time flies! My husband and I typically plan to go out for a nice dinner to celebrate, but this year I also wanted to include a cake for dessert. I heard a few years ago about substituting all the extra ingredients called for in cake mix for a soda or diet soda. This can help eliminate some extra calories from a sweet treat.

This year I am planning to make a strawberry cake with vanilla frosting. The calorie total comes to 360 calories per slice! Here is the recipe:

Cake Ingredients:

  • 1 box Betty Crocker Super Moist white cake mix
  • 1 can diet Sprite or Sprite Zero (12 oz.)
  • 1 container fresh strawberries, rinsed and cut

Frosting Ingredients:

  • 12 ounces reduced-fat cream cheese, at room temperature
  • ¼ cup powdered sugar
  • 3-4 tablespoons low-fat plain greek yogurt
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
