Use a boxed cake mix and jello to make these simple strawberry cupcakes. And don’t forget the strawberry buttercream on top! These Strawberry Buttercream Cupcakes won’t last long!
With this being our celebration month, I knew that we had to make some cupcakes! I’ve always thought cupcakes were so fun, but I just don’t seem to make them too much for some reason. That changed this month. We’ve got two new cupcakes to share with you. The first are these Strawberry Buttercream Cupcakes!
If someone asked my favorite dessert off the top of my head, I’m not sure what it would be, but most likely it would include chocolate. I love fruity desserts, but for some reason, I think mostly in chocolate when I want something sweet.
With spring and summer coming, I wanted to experiment a little more with some simple fruity desserts. These Strawberry Buttercream Cupcakes were first on the list. Why? Because they are made with a boxed cake mix, but burst with strawberry flavor by adding in a box of strawberry jello and some chopped frozen strawberries. This makes for a super moist cupcake.
The buttercream on top is made from powdered sugar, butter, milk, almond flavoring and strawberry jam. The jam adds in just the right amount of strawberry flavor to top these cupcakes, and it is so easy! If you love frosting, you’ll love this strawberry buttercream. It’ll melt in your mouth!
