Short And Sweet. Strawberry And Cream Cupcakes.

Strawberry And Cream Cupcakes

Q: What did one strawberry say to the other strawberry?
A: If you weren’t so sweet, we wouldn’t be in this jam!

Short and sweet and…..strawberry soda???

In these elegant cupcakes, strawberry soda replaces the water called for in the box mix. Sounds crazy, but it totally works.

The soda gives the cake a light strawberry flavor that is pretty irresistible and the cream cheese icing finishes things off with a terrific tang.

Ingredients:
1 box white cake mix
1 1/4 cups strawberry-flavored soda
Vegetable oil and egg whites called for on cake mix box
Red food color
1 container cream cheese icing
1/2 cup white candy sprinkles or non-pareils
Fresh strawberries, if desired

Directions:

1. Heat oven to 350°F.

2. Make, bake and cool cake mix as directed on box for 24 cupcakes, substituting soda for the water.

3. Stir a few drops of food color into frosting to tint pink.

4. Frost cupcakes with cream cheese icing (I used a plain round tip to swirl on) and shake sprinkles or non-pareils over.

5. Garnish with fresh strawberries if you like.

Strawberry have today’s short song for you.

And a sweet song from Strawberry, too. ‘Beautiful Day’ feels like summertime; happy and carefree.

“I’ve got a lovely feeling on this beautiful day.”

Me, too.

Check out Strawberry on Bandcamp, where you can buy their music. I love how the tag says: Alternative, Unpopular Music. Cracks me up.

Cheers!
