I don't see why the diet soda mix wouldn't work, but perhaps more experienced bakers will weigh in with their opinions contrary to mine. Since they're so thin, I would start them at 15 minutes and check them every couple of minutes after that if they're not done. Do you have a Cake Tester? If not, use a toothpick. It should come out clean. They should freeze rather well, but I'd either put wax paper between them or freeze them individually on a cookie sheet and then bag them. As for fiber...not sure. My first thought was Metamucil (or something similar) or flaxseed, but I'm not sure. I know the fiber mixes come flavorless and some say you can mix them in water without tasting them so that would work, but I have NO idea how that would work in a cake... Hope this helps!

I recently tried Vitatops for the first time---they are pretty good, but sheesh, talk about expensive ($5.49 for a box of 4). Plus I noticed after I had already bought them and eaten one that they have 4g of sugar alcohols (not good for my gut!)
I found a muffin top baking tin at a local store and bought it, so I am ready to make my own "vitatops".
I do "diet soda cake" all the time (one box cake mix, one can diet soda) and it's great---I wonder if it will work as muffin tops, which I would then freeze individually. Thoughts?
How would you add fiber to a muffin recipe to make them more like vitatops?
And how long would you bake the muffin tops in a muffin top baking tin like the one I bought? I am afraid esp. if I do chocolate ones that I will burn them.
