These are great cupcakes, and I can't wait to make them again! They are so simple! I used yellow cake mix since that was all I had, and I had some fresh strawberries. The fresh strawberries may have thrown off the ratio with the powdered sugar, because it was still too thin for the cupcakes. I tried adding corn starch, but it still did not thicken. Either way - they were delish! (And I plan to use my extra glaze on some crepes. Mmmm!)
