Strawberry Cupcakes

This recipe was inspired by two fabulous ladies.  First, I used a strawberry cake recipe from Keeping Up with the Jonses.  It was super simple to make and so light and fluffy. Then, I used a strawberry glaze recipe from Giada.  They were the perfect pair!  

Grandma's Strawberry Cake
1 box white cake mix
4 eggs
3/4 cup cooking oil
1/2-1/3 cup water
1 3 oz box of Strawberry Jello
1/2 10 oz box of frozen strawberries (I used 1/2 cup of fresh strawberries) 

Strawberry Glaze

  • 1/3 cup frozen strawberries, thawed and drained
  • 2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • Puree the strawberries in a blender or small food processor. Place the powdered sugar in a medium bowl. Pour in the strawberry puree and whisk until smooth. Top the cooled cupcakes with the strawberry glaze. Let the cupcakes sit for a few minutes for the glaze to firm up, then serve.
