Lemon Strawberry Cupcakes

I am so happy to share with you another doctored up cake mix recipe today. Lemon Strawberry Cupcakes. Taste great and very easy to put together!

Lemon Strawberry Cupcakes

The recipe consist of using a lemon flavored cake mix ( I used Duncan Hines Lemon Supreme) and some strawberries and there you have it. A new kind of cake flavor. The best part of this is the icing. I used my cream cheese frosting that I normally do for my cakes or cupcakes and instead of adding milk I added strawberry purée. Can we say yum?!!

I was so nervous about these cupcakes because I wasn’t sure how they would turn out. Any time I do something new and I know I am sharing it with someone I get nervous. Not sure because it always turns out great. I made them for a party we attended awhile back. In fact I have made them once more since then because I just loved the flavor so much. Again when in a pinch, grab a cake mix, add your flare to it and presto! You can get a great combination of flavors, such as these Lemon Strawberry Cupcakes, with a little time and creativity!

    I want to make these cupcakes. Are the frozen strawberries sweetened? All I could find at my grocer were in syrup.
    Thanks so much.

      Ellie that is a great question! I went to check the package to be sure. No my strawberries were not in syrup. I bought mine at Walmart and it was their Great Value brand that I purchased also the Dole brand is without syrup. Hope this helps! Let me know how your cupcakes turn out!
