Skinny Pineapple Bliss Cupcakes

By on Thursday, August 25th, 2011

Over the past 1o months I have lost just about 25 pounds with the help of Weight Watchers and the help of this amazing recipe site — Skinny Taste. If knew me in person you would know how much of a sweet tooth I have and how much I love to bake. Which, while ‘dieting’ is hard to deal with. But with the help of the aforementioned  website I have been able to get through the rough times where my sweet tooth would not back off.

Gina has great ‘skinny’ recipes for just about anything under the sun. Including, yep you guessed it, CUPCAKES. Gina is a lifesaver!

One of the many amazing recipes I made was Pineapple Bliss Cupcakes. Even though they are ‘skinny’ they hit the spot. Gina + Sweet Tooth = Sweet Weight Lost!

Attention all men: Looking for a sweet way to pop the big question?  If your girlfriend has a sweet tooth, then here’s an idea that you might like, and one that could easily be done at home with some practice (since you want your cupcake to impress).

Dreamcakes in Homewood, Alabama has recently come out with the proposal cupcake.  Customers can choose from any of the bakery’s 100 flavors, and the employees will write the big question on top of the cake, along with two faux rings (unless, of course, you’d like to put the real ring on top).
