Technically Home Made Strawberry Lemonade Cupcakes


1 box of lemon cake mix and ingredients as specified on the box (water, oil, eggs)
1 package of fresh strawberries
1 stick of butter - softened to room temperature
1 package of cream cheese (8 oz.) - softened to room temperature
2.5 cups confectioners/powdered sugar
2 tsp. vanilla extract

1. Mix the cake batter as directed on the lemon cake mix box.  I like to use an electric mixer on high for twice as long as directed.  I find that it makes the cake more fluffy and moist.

2. Chop 3/4 cup of strawberries and fold into the lemon cake batter.

3. Fill the lined cupcake pan until each cup is 3/4 full. Bake per lemon cake box directions.

4. Remove cooked cupcakes and let cool.

Now let's get to the cream cheese frosting!

5. Combine the butter, cream cheese, confectioners/powdered sugar and vanilla extract into a medium bowl.  Using an electric mixer on low speed, mix the ingredients until smooth.

6. Frost the cooled cupcakes with the cream cheese frosting.

7. Slice the remainder of the strawberries.  Place the sliced strawberries on top of the frosted cupcakes.

Finally, enjoy!
