Fab Fit Friday: The Cupcake Challenge

I have a problem. I am a cupcake addict. I know, I know. That's not terrible right? Well it is when the cupcakes you are addicted to are from Sprinkles. Have you ever had one? Well they're a little piece of heaven in your mouth. Red Velvet is my kryptonite. Since I have this little problem I challenged Taralynn to come up with a healthy alternative to my nemesis and well she did what she does and I'll never feel bad for eating a cupcake again!
