Ingredients:

  • White Cake Mix – Stock up when cake mixes go on sale and buy extra for the pantry.
  • Strawberry jello
  • Sweetened lemonade mix
  • Strawberries – When I made this strawberries were not in season so I used frozen and that is one option. However, once Strawberries start to get in season and are so cheap, I like to use fresh.  Feel free to use whatever you have.

How to make strawberry lemonade cupcakes:

1. First, mix together the cake mix, dry jello and 2 tablespoons of the lemonade.  Go ahead and also preheat the oven too.

2. Second, you need to puree the strawberries but this is easy. I use my food processor and it only takes a few seconds.

3. Next, add the strawberry puree to the cake mix along with eggs and oil . It looks and smells amazing. Mix everything together.

Seriously though…. try not to eat this with a spoon. Please wait until after the cupcakes are in the oven and you can lick the bowl clean.  Don’t judge me!

4. Put cupcake liners in the pan and fill with the batter. I like to use a cookie scoop to do this but it’s totally optional.  It definitely helps to make it go faster and to ensure each one is the same size.

5. Finally, bake until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Cool before decorating!

Now, let’s make the icing!

First, cream the butter. Slowly add the powdered sugar and lemonade mix.  You can use a stand mixer if you have one.

Next, add water as needed but just a little at a time until the frosting is the preferred consistency.

Put the icing into a piping bag and decorate the cupcakes. I love these Wilton throw away bags because you can just toss them once you are finished.

Another option is to use a ziplock bag and just cut the corner to pipe the icing if you don’t have a piping bag.

This last step is optional but you can dust with sparkling sugar, top with lemon candy and a fun straw if you prefer. So fun!
