I have a major sweet tooth, so I thought it would be nice of me to share a trick I learned for making an inexpensive cake that is also lighter than its regular counterpart. Buy one boxed cake mix. Instead of adding what it tells you to (eggs, oil), just pour it in a mixing bowl and add one can of diet soda. If you buy a chocolate or dark cake mix, use a dark soda (regular works well, but you can try like a diet dr. pepper or diet cherry if you want a little pizzazz). If you buy a light cake mix, use diet sprite or something like it. Bake in the oven as usual. Instead of making a heavy buttercream icing or buying a can of frosting, top the cake with light whipped cream. I'm telling you, the cake turns out moist and delicious!
