Casey’s Cupcakes Debuts New Skinny Cupcake

Casey’s Cupcakes Debuts New Skinny Cupcake

With summer around the corner, thoughts of lazy days at the pool and beach are some of the prime moments we look forward to all year. However, one thing that is not top of mind are high-calorie desserts. Well, Casey Reinhardt, owner and master inventor of Casey’s Cupcakes created a new dessert just in time for summer – the Skinny Cupcake.

My daughters and I visited The Irvine Spectrum Center’s Casey’s Cupcakes location and ordered a few cupcakes to sample. We sat on the patio under the pink awning with the afternoon sun shining. Surprisingly, the Skinny Cupcake did not have that “diet” after-taste like many other low-calorie foods.

The fluffy angel food cake is topped with non-dairy, sugar free whipped cream, a fresh strawberry and sparkling glitter. As I enjoyed each bite, it was hard to believe the cupcake is just 159 calories.

Admittedly, I am a true chocolate lover, however, this cupcake is a refreshing change without the high sugar and calorie overload. Most importantly, I didn’t leave Casey’s Cupcakes feeling deprived, guilty or bloated. Not a bad way to go into the summer months – or my bikini. The cupcake is available at all five Southern California locations for $3.50.
