    I was feeling the same way...so I just made some da*n cupcakes! And it was amazing:) I did do the diet soda cake thing and it turned out alright- at least I only had the calories of the cake mix. Moderation they say- we all should get a treat now and again!

    Have your cupcake and work it off later. Consider it a cheat treat.

    Reminds me of last week sitting next to my sweet friend. She had a muffin that was chocolate, huge, and over 760 calories. Tons of fat. I wrote her a note on a post it: "I will not eat the huge chocolate muffin, I will not eat the GIGANTIC chocolate muffin," and similar statements over and over again and at the bottom I added, "But I will sit here and look at it longingly." She drew me a picture of a giant chocolate muffin on a sticky note and "shared" it with me that way. :P I instead enjoyed my water and felt good that I wasn't giving in. I can have small treats on other days, like the weekend, and feel like I'm not deprived.

    I couldn't imagine 700+ calories into one muffin or cupcake. I also didn't eat donuts and muffins when work provided them. I don't tend to deprive myself if I'm craving. I'll have a bite, and I'm done and that helps. I found I really didn't -want- the muffin, but we had fun with the moment.

    I know the feeling. I had it Monday after an interview (that took 90 minutes to get to) didn't go so well. And the cupcake shop nearby was closed.

    So I made a carrot cake cupcake and all was well.

    This is where I found my recipe, and she has many other single-serving cupcake recipes as well.
