If you are a fan of strawberries, you are going to love these Strawberry Pie Cupcakes with strawberry buttercream frosting. I started with a box cake mix, then stuffed each cupcake with strawberry pie filling, and topped them off with the best strawberry butter cream frosting.
Strawberry Pie Cupcakes
My kiddos have made a few requests this past week for some cupcakes for dessert. I recalled how much the entire family enjoyed our Apple Pie Cupcakes this past fall. Since strawberries are a family favorite, I knew a strawberry cupcake would perfect.
I am so super happy I decided on strawberry. The frosting on these cupcakes was out of this world amazing. The addition of the strawberry pie filling in the middle made them that much more special too!
I use store bought cake mixes quite often. I can whip up a batch of cupcakes in no time at all. I sent the kiddos off to school and had these delicious cupcakes done quickly.
If you are needing a super strawberry dessert, I will highly suggest these little guys. They will be great for Valentine’s Day, summer BBQ, or just for after dinner dessert.
Grab yourself a cake mix, strawberry pie filling, butter, confectioners sugar, and vanilla and have these ready for dessert this evening. These were so super simple that I could probably let my teens make them on their own.
