Carmen Electra's cupcake obsession and recipe for skinny cake icing
Synonymous with a gorgeous figure, Carmen Electra understands the pressure of needing to eat healthily to stay in shape. However, like many girls, Carmen loves cupcakes, especially those with rich icing reminiscent of children's birthday party cakes.
The best way to bake your cupcakes and eat them too when exercising calorie control is to create a low-fat icing mix. Reduced-fat cream cheese is essential to have in your fridge as the ingredient can transform many traditionally high-fat desserts.
LOW FAT LEMONY ICING
½ tub of low-fat cream cheese
3 tablespoons of buttermilk
¼ cup of sifted icing sugar
1 teaspoon of lemon juice
1 teaspoon of lemon rind
In an electric mixer, whip the cream cheese and buttermilk until it’s light and fluffy. Mix in the lemon juice and rind and gradually add the icing sugar until combined.
