These instructions make 8 cupcakes.

What you need:   

How to make it: 

  1. Preheat oven to 325F and set up 8 cupcake liners.
  2. Prepare the Lemon Protein Cake Mix with applesauce as instructed on the package. Spoon into the 8 cupcake liners as the bottom layer of the cupcake.
  3. Prepare the Vanilla Protein Cake Mix by adding 90g pumpkin and 3 tablespoons carrot juice. To keep the layers horizontal, pipe the batter into the cupcake liners around the edges first (see video), on top of the lemon batter.
  4. Bake at 325F for 15 minutes and check to see if the cupcakes are done. Remove them from the oven as soon as a toothpick inserted comes out clean. (Don't overbake!)
  5. Once cupcakes are cool, stir together heavy cream and Vanilla Sugar-Free Frosting Mix until mix is dissolved. Let it sit up to 5 minutes to be sure it is fully dissolved.
  6. Beat the cream just until stiff peaks are formed (this happens quickly with an electric or stand mixer).
  7. Set up a piping bag or ziplock with the piping tip, and fill with frosting. Use the straight edge of a bowl scraper to push the frosting down the bag as needed, and frost the cupcakes. 
  8. Top natural sprinkles, if desired, and enjoy!
