How much better (calorie-wise) is the diet soda cake recipe?

So my friend just told me about the WW recipes where you take cake mix and just add a diet soda of some type and it makes a cake without needing oil or eggs.
Just wondering though, how many calories and grams of fat does this save?
I think someone said 1/12 of a cake made with diet soda would be 170 calories -so how many calories are in 1/12 of cake made normally?

Thanks in advance!

Answer on How much better (calorie-wise) is the diet soda cake recipe?

It depends on the cake mix, but looking at the betty crocker website for a cherry chip mix, the calories as prepared following the directions are 230 per serving (1/12 of a cake) and made with diet soda 160 calories.
