Changing the subject now! My Great Grandfather turned 84 today so we had a little family get together and I of course was in charge of the dessert. I love baking and dream of one day opening my very own cupcake shop. I have these cupcakes that I make (Strawberry filled vanilla cupcakes with butter cream icing) they are my signature cupcake, my family goes crazy for them. I normally make my vanilla cupcakes from scratch and make my own strawberry filling but I needed an easier recipe for those days that I don't have alot of time to slave over the stove! So.........
with a regular box of golden vanilla cake mix and
canned strawberry pie filling/topping I was able to make some fast and very SCRUMPTIOUS vanilla strawberry filled cupcakes!! mmmm.....
Bake the cupcakes, let them cool and then hollow the center out with an apple corer
Then fill a disposable pastry bag with the filling
Cut the tip big enough for the filling to come out but small enough for it to fit in the hole.
Then fill em up:)
Last just frost em with some vanilla buttercream or you can even use the store bought kind.
I make my own:
1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup unsalted butter (1 stick)
Then add 4 cups of confectioners sugar (1 cup at a time) and 4tbs of milk
Mix until fluffy
