A Valentine's Tradition...
My Mom has made a strawberry pop cake for as long as I can remember--seriously. It's a Valentine's Day tradition and SO good. Not to mention that it's insanely easy to make.
-Buy a box of white cake mix
-Substitute strawberry pop for the water (so you will use strawberry pop, oil and egg whites. NO water)
-Bake as directed
I also make a strawberry frosting. It's insanely good!
-Melted butter (a couple of tbsp)
-Softened cream cheese
Dump in powdered sugar, butter, cream cheese and a small amount of strawberry pop. Mix with your mixer and add more powdered sugar/strawberry pop as desired. Mix until frosting consistency.
I don't have the exact frosting measurements...I just add until I get the frosting that I want.
Top your cupcake with red hot candies, candy, fresh strawberries, sprinkles--or anything that you would like. You'll then end up with the most delicious cupcake ever.
