Food For Thought Tuesday: Strawberry and Cream Cupcakes

Hope you all had a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend. 

We pretty much did nothing.  
It was nice. 
The weather however, was horrible. 

When is summer ever going to show up?

Even though the weather was horrible, this little treat did brighten my day a little. :)

I made these on Sunday and they were delicious! 



Ingredients:

SUPER EASY

These cupcakes are seriously easy peasy. The only ingredient that was not in my pantry was the Fanta strawberry soda. 

I love how pink the batter is from the soda. 

I only like to fill my cupcake papers about two-thirds full.  I find if you do it any more than this than you get major muffin-tops.  

This batter made 18 cupcakes. 



Cool, and frost.





Recipe from "Super Moist Cake Mix Recipes" from Betty Crocker

Strawberry and Cream Cupcakes:

1 box Betty Crocker super moist white cake mix
1 1/4 cups strawberry flavored soda pop ( I used Fanta)
Vegetable oil and egg whites called for on cake mix box.
Fresh Strawberries for garnish
1 Recipe of Cream Cheese Frosting.  Go HERE for my recipe.

heat oven to 350.  Make and bake cake mix as directed on box for 24 cupcakes, substituting soda pop for the water and using oil and egg whites.  

Bake for 14 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean.  Cool in pan for 10  minutes.  Remove and cool on cooling rack. 

When completely cooled, frost with cream cheese frosting and top with chopped strawberries. 

Refrigerate. 

Linking up to some of these parties!
