ROCKLIN --  Icing on the Cupcake is serving what they call guilt -free cupcakes.  The cupcakes are supar fee and are available in two flavors: Skinny Pink (chocolate) and Skinny Lemon.

On average, the sugar free treats have 50 percent less calories, fat and carbs than their original counterparts. Babybites are also available in these flavor and their counts are just 1/5 of their original full size counterparts! Babybites are available by special order in both flavors by calling (916) 303-4333.

The owners of Icing on the Cupcake say finding the right sugar free sweetener was a challenge as they wanted to maintain the same homemade, fresh taste of their original cupcakes for the sugar free line.

"Sugar Free Cupcakes are something we have wanted to offer our customers for a long time," explained co-owner Shirley Nagasawa. "It took a long time to find just the right sweetener that would translate our homemade quality into a sugar free treat. IOTC is proud to offer a delicious homemade treat to a whole new population.

Their sugar-free cupcakes use a 100 percent natural sweetener called Xylitol that is ideally suited to baking. According to Xylitol.org, it is one of the top sweetener alternatives found in health food stores and has become a favorite of dentists and nutritionists.

BONUS TIP: Return you cupcake box (the ones that fit 4 cupcakes or more) to any Icing on the Cupcake location, and they will give you a free cupcake.
