I have been craving a good strawberry cupcake; however, all store bought mixes have very little flavor and lots of dyes. And most recipes for “scratch” cakes call for jello (again…we can’t have the dye). So I decided it was time to tackle this recipe and see what I could come up with.
Our family met at our local BBQ place…they give a free meal on your birthday, so we are always there….and I brought the cupcakes. I love experimenting (and my family loves it too). So last weekend was the perfect weekend because it was my nephew’s 13th birthday. He is a really picky eater, so I am pleased to announced that this past his test.
Honestly, you could swap out the “scratch” part of the recipe for a boxed white cake mix. But you should try making your own cake from scratch at least once. I promise it’s very easy! Complete the look by using decorating tube 1M.
One last picture, just cuz it turned out really neat. I had a lot of fun with my new camera at the restaurant…it was a beautiful January day in Phoenix.
