Diet soda girly cake.

I’ve seen a lot of pins and blog posts that have 2 ingredient cake – cake mix + diet soda. So on a whim, I decided to try out diet 7-up with a strawberry cake as my “something pink” for  our gender reveal party. Here are my whopping 3 ingredients…

You’re supposed to use a can of soda, so I just measured 12 ounces.

Added the soda to the cake mix, and watched what looked like a volcano science fair project.

Mixed it together…

And baked it according to the cake box directions, yes right next to baked beans…

The cake actually tasted kind of like a strawberry margarita. Although, honestly, I don’t know that I’ve actually ever had one of those, but it’s what I bet they taste like! It was really good, really moist, and still fluffy. I used fat-free cool whip as the frosting, oh my, that was a great choice. Plus, it’s got to be much healthier than the normal cake since it doesn’t have eggs, oil, or icing. {Bonus!}

I will definitely make this again, probably in the Summer, and maybe add some fresh strawberries on top. Yum.



  1. I just made cherry chip cupcakes with Diet 7-Up and cool whip - so good! They're super moist and they've lasted a long time!

  2. Love your post! Seems like fun to do cakes now. LOL! I might try this also i will put chocolate on it. ♥

  3. Omg, I just made this today!!!! It is so easy and taste sooooooooo good!!!
