Royal Wedding Cupcakes or OMG Cupcakes
1 white cake mix
1/2 cup melted BUTTER
1 cup water
Preheat oven to 350.
Mix all ingredients on low & then mix on high for 2 mins.
Pour into paper lined cupcake pans. Bake for 20 mins.
Strawberry Whipped Cream (filling)
1 cup heavy cream
1/3 cup sugar
1 t. vanilla
5-6 chopped/processed strawberries
Chop strawberries in blender or food chopper until they are thick. It only takes about 4 large berries.
Beat whipping cream & vanilla until it starts to thicken. Mix in sugar. Fold in berries. Set aside.
Cream Cheese Frosting
1/2 cup butter, at room temperature
8 oz. cream cheese, at room temperature
1 t. vanilla
4 cups powdered sugar
Place butter in mixing bowl & mix slightly. Add cream cheese & blend until combined.
Add powdered sugar & blend on low speed until combined. Mix on medium until it get fluffy.
NOTE: for chocolate cream cheese frosting, add 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder BEFORE adding the powdered sugar.
For Filling Cupcakes
1. Bake cupcakes & cool.
2. Cut a small section in the center of the cupcake. I used my apple corer & it worked great. Save the extra cake to eat later with some of the filling!!!
3. Replace the tops. I actually just left them off.
4. Pipe the frosting on top of the cake with a 1M tip, or just generously spread.
Refrigerate the cupcakes until ready to serve.
OMG, now EAT one!!!
