I started making cakes with soda because I wanted to make it lower in fat. I got that idea from my boyfriend's mother. I found that using this method was just as good. You can also substitute using diet sodas also. For this recipe, I prefer using 7 Up. I like using egg whites because without it, the cake crumbles and is very mess to serve and eat.
