Instructions

Cupcakes

  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F
  • Line muffin tin with paper liners
  • In a large mixing bowl, mix cake mix, water, egg whites, vanilla extract, 2 tsps strawberry extract, and butter with a hand mixer until fully combined.
  • Add batter to the muffin cups filling until approx 1/2 inch from the top.
  • Bake for approximately 15 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of a cupcake removes cleanly.
  • Let sit in muffin tin for 5 minutes and then transfer to a cooling rack until completely cooled.

Strawberry Cream Filling

  • In a separate mixing bowl, add heavy whipping cream, remaining strawberry extract, and powdered sugar. Whip until stiff peaks form.
  • Fold diced berries into the whipped cream mixture using a spatula.

Strawberry Cream Cupcake Assembly

  • Remove paper liner from cupcakes and cut tops off using a serrated knife. I like to cut the top third off the cupcake.
  • Spread whip mixture generously onto the bottom half of the cupcake. You can also use a piping bag and a Jumbo tip to apply the cream!
  • Add top of the cupcake back on top
  • Sprinkle with powdered sugar. You can use a sifter or just pinch and sprinkle with your fingers.
