I try to avoid recipes with processed foods in them but this was the recipe used for my niece's first birthday...I gotta admit that they were good and very PINK! Pretty in Pink is a fitting title. A lot of strawberry flavor to them. Top them with strawberry buttercream and you have a cupcake any little girl will want at her next party. And I will also comment that they were moist but not oily or greasy, a big thumbs up for that.

I love this recipe! I don't like using cake mixes but I wasn't sure where to start when my daughter requested strawberry cupcakes. There were so quick to make and were a huge hit at the bbq I took them to. This recipe worked so well I've started substituting...instead of strawberries and strawberry gelatin I used lemon gelatin and added a little lemon juice and rind to the batter. I finished them by filling with lemon curd and topped off with a lemon cream cheese frosting. Awesome! Thanks so much for sharing.

Excellent! Had a very nice stawberry taste. Couldn't even begin to tell they started with a box mix. Will certainly make these again.

I just made these with my kids after school. I used pureed frozen strawberries for the 1 cup fresh, and used 1/2 cup low fat milk and 1/4 cup whipping cream for the whole milk. They were moist, fruity and we ate them unfrosted without complaints! (only because Mom didn't want to sift powdered sugar for frosting!)

I did this recipe with a cream cheese frosting for a baby shower. They were beautiful, but also very moist and flavorful with the strawberries in the cake. I added strawberry extract to the frosting to have a complete berry experience. AWESOME!!!! Thank you!
