Low-Point Fanta Orange Cupcakes

There's nothing like a refreshing Fanta orange soda! So why not add it to a batter? If you are a fan of Fanta or orange frozen push-ups, you will very much enjoy the flavor of these cupcakes topped with a smooth orange-flavored icing to give it a wonderful orange taste in every bite. Very low point and totally yummy... these Fanta cupcakes are a real treat!
