Oh, and did you know these amazing cupcakes are semi homemade? I know! It’s a hostesses dream! The white cake mix is the perfect substitution for white bread.
Use a level ice cream scoop of cake batter. This will help keep the cupcakes the same size.
Use the large end of a melon ball tool to remove some of the cake from the center of each cupcake. Reserve what is removed.
Add strawberry preserves (or your favorite jelly) to a zip top bag, cut one corner.
Fill each hole with preserves.
Place what was removed back on top.
Add a swirl of Strawberry Butter Frosting.
Fill the center with Peanut Butter Frosting.
TIPS FOR A LIGHT AND FLUFFY FROSTING
- Good ingredients “real” butter not margarine
- Room temperature ingredients
- Be patient….you’ll need to whip the frosting at least 3 to 5 minutes (sometimes I do this step twice). This will allow air to incorporate into the butter and create the lightness you want.
- That’s it! It’s really not as hard as you might think.
