Happy Friday everyone!
Since I kind of dropped the ball on the Football Friday recipe last week, I decided to wrap up the series with one last recipe today. Auburn doesn't play tomorrow, but we do have plans to go to a baby shower tomorrow night. These strawberry cupcakes are pretty easy and are always a hit. They are the closest things I have found to a bakery strawberry cake- minus the $$. They are pink (obviously) so they are great to celebrate the birth of this little girl!
1 box white cake mix
1 (3 oz.) box strawberry jello
1 (16 oz.) box frozen sliced strawberries
1/2 c. vegetable oil
Mix cake mix and jello in mixing bowl. Put strawberries in food processor (or blender), reserving 3/4 c. for later use in icing. Add strawberries, oil, and eggs to cake and Jello mixture. Beat about 3 min. Bake at 350* for about 20 min. Cool in pans for 15 mins. Cupcakes should be completely cool before icing.
11/2 box of confectioners' sugar, sifted
3/4 c. strawberries that have been reserved
3/4 stick margarine, melted
Beat to consistency to spread.
Have a wonderful weekend my friends!
