Royal Wedding Cupcakes

I printed this recipe from awhile back & have been waiting for an opportunity to make them.  In her recipe, she uses a chocolate fudge cake mix & a chocolate cream cheese frosting.  Mm-m-m, sounds delicious, right?  Well, since I wanted a special cupcake for the Royal Wedding, I adapted it to a white cake & white cream cheese frosting.  They are the MOST scrumptious cupcakes ever!!!!!!!!!!  Please try these & make them for someone special.  Here's my adapted recipe, courtesy of tidymom.


1 white cake mix
3 eggs
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.

See the delicious filling!
