I'm going to an event today that is having cupcakes catered from this AMAZING local bakery. I want to work one (maybe even two!) into my calories for the day, but am not sure how to count them. Is 250 calories per cupcake about right, do you think? Too high, too low?
i think it probably depends on what the cake part of is made of and the kind of icing that is used and if it has candy toppings etc etc. you should probably leave 300 cals per cupcake to play it safe and then calculate their exact amounts when you get home and once you know what each one was made of.
Sounds good, thanks! I just had an awesome breakfast pita for 170 calories, so if I count 600 calories of cupcakes as my "lunch," then I'm still on-track to have a normal dinner. Kind of a weird day food-wise, but TOTALLY worth it to have cupcakes from this particular bakery!
