I made these cupcakes for Bethany's shower. It was my first time using a frosting decorating tip and you can kinda tell I'm a rookie :) I was disappointed that you couldn't really tell there were fresh strawberries in them. I think I could have used a strawberry cake mix and nobody would have noticed. But they were moist!
1 (3 ounce) package strawberry flavored gelatin
1/2 cup cold water
1 (18.25 ounce) package white cake mix
1 cup vegetable oil
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
5 oz. frozen strawberries, thawed and pureed
- Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease and flour three 9 inch round cake pans.
- In a large bowl, dissolve the gelatin in cold water; stir in the cake mix, eggs, vegetable oil, flour and 1/2 of the strawberries. Beat for 5 minutes on the medium speed of an electric mixer. Divide the batter evenly between the prepared cake pans.
- Bake for 30 to 35 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the layers spring back when lightly pressed in the center. Cool cakes in the pans on wire racks.
