Enjoy these delicious strawberry-shaped cupcakes made in a decorative way using cake mix, frosting and fruit snacks--perfect for an anytime dessert.
box Betty Crocker™ SuperMoist™ white cake mix
Water, vegetable oil and egg whites called for on cake mix box
teaspoon Betty Crocker™ red gel food color
container Betty Crocker™ Rich & Creamy creamy white frosting
box (4.5 oz) Betty Crocker™ Fruit by the Foot™ green chewy fruit snack rolls
cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips
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. (See photo.)
Make, bake and cool cake mix as directed on box for cupcakes.
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.
If you have only one pan and a recipe calls for more cupcakes than your pan will make, cover and refrigerate the rest of the batter while baking the first batch. Cool the pan about 15 minutes, then bake the rest of the batter, adding 1 to 2 minutes to the bake time.
