These were like the ultimate strawberry shortcakes. I love that the bottom of the cupcakes have a pretzel crust and that there is sour cream in the batter for the cupcakes. The pretzel cruse adds just a slight bit of saltiness to the sweetness of the cupcake and filling. I also love that the recipe utilizes strawberry ice cream topping.
These were pretty awesome and I had lots of good reviews. I will definitely be making them again.

This beauty was the cake that I made this year for my mom’s birthday. Making it is very easy and it had fewer calories than the traditional way to make a boxed cake. I used a can of diet lemon-lime soda instead of what the box tells you to use then baked it according to the directions on the box.
For the frosting, I used a tub of Fat Free Whipped Topping (think Cool Whip) and a package of sugar-free strawberry jello mix. I added a layer of frosting and strawberries in between the layers of cake and then frosted the rest of the cake and topped with sliced strawberries. It was great and lower in calories than what we might have had otherwise.
