 Strawberry Cupcakes
These strawberry cupcakes are so good, they are way better than store bought cupcakes! You will find that these are very easy to make, and are affordable!
Here's what you will need to make 24 cupcakes:
  • Two 16oz cans of Pillsbury Strawberry Frosting
  • 1 Box of Pillsburry Confetti Cake Mix (Valentine's Day Edition) *You can find this at the dollar store.
  • 24 Cupcake liners, comes with 24 heart toothpicks *Also found at the dollar store.
  • Wilton's 18 Piece Cake Decorating Set *Hobby Lobby
  • Cupcake baking pan
  • 12 Strawberries
  • Red Sugar
 <3 Instructions <3
  1. Follow the instructions for baking the cups on the back of the cake mix box.  (For my cupcakes I baked them at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes).Time may vary depending on the type of oven you have.
  3.  Let cupcakes cool before frosting. For faster cooling times I stuck my cupcakes in 2 plastic containers and placed them into my freezer half covered, for about 5 minutes.
  5. Once cupcakes are fully cooled, you can start the frosting process. I used Wiltons Frosting Tip #12. Place frosting into plastic bag found in the Wilton's cake decorating set by using a spatula. Add 1/2 cup of frosting to the bag. Start by squeezing the frosting onto the cupcake roating the cupcake in a circular motion. This will get the results in the above photo.
  7. Rinse and cutt strawberries in half, placing them onto the frosted cupcake.
  9. Place heart shaped decorative toothpicks into cupcakes
  11. Sprinkle red decorating sugar onto cupcakes
  13. Place all cupcakes into a plastic container with lid in the freezer to set the frosting
  15. Once frosting is set, store cupcakes in the fridge until ready to serve!
To make your cupcakes stand out, place them on a decorative plate. I found mine at the dollar store!

Happy Valentines Day!
