If you’re like me, you’ve never met a cupcake you didn’t like. And the Strawberry Cupcakes I made for Babygirl’s Pancakes & Pajamas Party were such a hit I thought you might like in on the goodness.
Fresh Strawberry Cupcakes
1 package white or yellow cake mix1 small box strawberry gelatin1 cup finely chopped fresh strawberries with a pinch of cinnamon mixed in (something about it preserving the strawberry flavor)3/4 cup milk3/4 cup oil4 eggs
4. Bake 20-25 minutes and allow to cool completely before frosting.
Cream Cheese Frosting
8 oz. soft cream cheese
1/4 cup soft butter
1 tsp. vanilla
4 cups powdered sugar
1. Beat cream cheese, butter and vanilla until well blended.
2. Beat in powdered sugar gradually until creamy. Add a splash of milk if your frosting resembles play-doh. I also dropped some red food color in for pink frosting.
The cupcakes turn out light as air, a pretty shade of pink, and so delicious with pieces of fresh strawberry! Just perfect for Spring. Are you able to resist a cupcake?
