I love to bake but let’s face it, I am not always in the mood to go the homemade route and I am a huge fan of out-of-the-box baking. These swoon worthy Valentine’s strawberry cupcakes using box mix are enough to call your own. I ran into these adorable cupcake liners and the kids have been begging me to make something sweet. I will go weeks where we have something sweet after dinner and then have absolutely nothing to satisfy our sweet tooth.
I grabbed a few strawberry cupcake necessities to make these swoon worthy Valentine’s strawberry cupcakes using box mix. I’m not brand loyal when it comes to my cake mix and grabbed the least expensive and yummy sounding box I could find. If you aren’t a fan of strawberry cake mix this recipe works with any flavor and you don’t have to stick with vanilla pudding either.
Strawberry cupcakes using box mix
- 1 box Strawberry Cake Mix (24)
- 3 Instant Vanilla Pudding Mix boxes
- 2 cups Water
- 1/2 cup Vegetable oil
- 5 Egg whites
- Skip the box directions.
- Mix the above ingredients together in a bowl.
- Fill cupcake lined tins slightly above half.
- Bake 20 minutes or until cooked through. (use the toothpick check method)
- Candy Sprinkles
- 3 Pink or White colored Frosting tubs
- Frosting Gun (I use pampered chef and have had it for over 10 years)
- Fill frosting gun with tub frosting.
- Start about a quarter inch from the cupcake liner in a circular motion moving your way to the center.
- Pull up to make that cute frosting point.
- Do not frost the strawberry cupcakes until cooled completely. You will have nice frosting that stays beautifully if you let them cool.
Do not frost the strawberry cupcakes until cooled completely.
The frosting will go quick and with the cupcakes less is more don’t over frost them. They look pretty with the cupcake not completely covered.
Top strawberry cupcakes with sugar sprinkles and slices of strawberries.
My family isn’t usually a fan of strawberry cupcakes but the moistness of these make them A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. You will completely surprise them with how great these strawberry cupcakes come out.
