For the short answer you can play the video below. For the long answer, just keep reading.

You may have read my recent post about Cakespy and her super cute cupcake drawings. Well, I loved the Diet Coke one so much, (yes, I drink my fair share of the stuff) I thought I would thank her by decorating a cupcake with fondant to look like her “L’il Cuppie” character. Then I thought … why not recreate the drawing, too. And then, I went crazy and made this little animated video. So here you go Cakespy, this is for you.

L’il Cuppie in “Hiccuppie”

And to keep with the theme, I made him using a Diet Coke Cake recipe. (thought it would be fitting.) It was surprisingly good considering the butter was replaced with carbonated chemicals. It was a little crumbly, but if you’re on Weight Watchers (I’m not) it’s only 4 pts. per serving.

Here’s the recipe I used.
And here’s a bunch of other Coke recipes if you’re interested.
