Strawberry Cupcakes, fresh, sweet and juicy in flavour!
I cheated and used Duncan Hines Classic White boxed cake mix
as well as strawberry jello.
I blended my strawberries, milk & oil until desired consistency was reached. I like to be able to see some strawberry pieces in the cupcakes.
Then I mixed my boxed caked mix, jello, strawberry mixture & eggs.
Once it's all blended I fill a measuring cup, I find it's easier to
fill cupcake liners this way, less mess.
Fill the liners 2/3 full - gnarly muffic pans I know, I've had them for years, they aren't pretty but they work perfectly.
See look, I do have other pans as well, left gnarly, right is pretty
Then using my Duncan Hines frosting creations,
I mixed up Strawberry Shortcake frosting.
Just so that you know, I am a member of the Duncan Hines Bakers Club, anyone can join - it's free!! About 2 months ago they had a draw to win a Duncan Hines prize pack and I won!!
Duncan Hines picked my name, my blog wasn't entered, nor did they know I even have a blog - so this isn't a paid advertisement, this is just me lovin' these new frosting creations!
I made Orange Dream Cupcakes, using a similar recipe. Yumilicious!
Well, hello sweet berry !!!
A shout out to Heeman's, they have a 'pick your own' strawberry farm
as well as the most beautiful garden centre.
I picked my strawberries and wandered the greenhouses taking pictures and breathing in natures fragrant flowers, I'll be posting pictures soon.
