Betty Crocker made these “perfect for Summer” cupcake strawberries. They’re super easy, too, just make cupcakes, they suggest white cake, but I think I would use a strawberry flavored cake. Then frost them with colored frosting and add mini chocolate chip “seeds”. Green fruit roll ups are cut into leaf shapes to finish them!
1 box white cake mix
Water, vegetable oil and egg whites called for on cake mix box
1/4 teaspoon red gel food color
1 container white frosting
1 box green chewy fruit snack rolls
1/4 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips
1. Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pans). Place paper baking cup in each of 24 regular-size muffin cups. To make strawberry-shaped cupcakes, pinch in one side of each paper baking cup. Insert 1/2-inch ball of foil between liner and muffin cup to hold in place.
2. Make, bake and cool cake mix as directed on box for cupcakes.
3. Stir food color into frosting until well blended. Frost cooled cupcakes with frosting to look like strawberries. Cut chewy fruit snack into leaf shapes; press into tops of cupcakes. Arrange chocolate chips on frosting to look like seeds. Store loosely covered.
