Strawberry Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

When I saw this recipe on Just A Pinch, I could only imagine how good this would be until this morning. Just ate my first one. Yum! They gave it as a layer cake, but had to make cupcakes because I wanted to share some and didn’t know quite how many I would eat before actually getting them out the door. So glad it made 29 cupcakes. I could have 5 of them all to myself. With this new computer, I have not figured out how to get the pics from my phone to this blog, so cannot post a picture yet, but will learn as soon as my daughter gets here next week.

Recipe worth sharing:

1 white Duncan Hines Cake mix

1 small box strawberry jello ( not the sugar free)
1 cup of sweetened, undrained mashed strawberries

1 cup oil

1/2 cup milk

4 eggs

Mix all ingredients for cake and pour into 2 9″ greased cake pans, 1 9×11 pan or cupcake liners.

Bake until cake or cupcakes tests done.

When cooled, frost with the following:

1 stick butter, softened

1 (8 oz) cream cheese, softened

1 box of powdered sugar  (3 1/2 cups powdered sugar)

A little of the strawberry juice left over from the thawed strawberries to flavor and color the frosting. If you don’t want to use cream cheese use the following recipe

1 box powdered sugar

1 stick softened butter

1/2 cup mashed strawberries, drained

Mix until smooth and frost cake
