Valentine’s Day Pink Strawberry Cupcakes

Valentine’s Day Pink Strawberry Cupcakes

 

Totally healthy cupcakes. Well maybe not so much but they are delicious!

Strawberry cupcakes, yummy!! Pillsbury Moist Supreme was the quick cupcake recipe mix I used for Valentine’s Day cupcakes to take for a party. The recipe calls for simple ingredients and with the help of Dollar Tree and my Wilton Cake Decorating tools, my cupcakes were a hit! I love making things but also keeping a budget in mind. Here we go!

 

Heat oven at 350 Degrees

Ingredients:

1 Box of Pillsbury Moist Supreme Strawberry Cake Mix

1/3 Cup oil

1 Cup water

2 sets of different style cupcake paper cup sets

3 eggs

1 Handheld or stationary mixer

Cupcake Pans

Ice Cream Scooper (Optional)

1 Container of Frosting

Decorating embellishments (Optional)

Ziploc Bag

Scissors

Spatula

Wilton Cake Decorating Tips and Bags (Optional)

 

Directions:

Pour in all ingredients in a bowl, mix until batter is smooth, and pour into cupcake paper cups. When pouring the batter into the cupcake holders, an option to use an ice cream scooper will enable for more even amounts of batter for your cupcakes. Once the baking of the cupcakes are complete and a toothpick is inserted into a cupcake and the toothpick is clean from any batter, you’re ready to pull them out of the oven and start decorating!

For decorating, anyone can use a Ziploc Bag, fill the bag with icing using your spatula. Push all of the frosting to one bottom corner of the bag, make a very small snip to the corner of the bag and twist the excess of the bag on top so that the frosting is tightly compacted to the corner of the bag. Let out any air bubbles so that the frosting would not have a break as you are decorating. The other option would be to use the Wilton Cake Decorating Tips and Bags where you will find various tip shapes that result in different designs on your cupcake. Have fun, decorate and enjoy your beautiful treat!
