This year, Easter was held at my parent's house, which meant that my mother and I were in charge of cooking. And cooking we did. From about 9am until 4pm. Yikes! Who knew that cooking was so much work? I was definitely exhausted after all was complete.

For the strawberry cupcakes, I reccommend pouring the batter into a ziploc baggy because it is rather runny.
Because the box cake mix makes 24 cupcakes... and I decided to make 2 different kinds... well... we had a few too many. What are 10 people going to do with so many cupcakes? Oh yeah.. EAT THEM!
I used the same PB frosting as last time, but I modified measurements here and there, making sure to add some extra PB.
I got the buttercream frosting from good ol' Miss Betty Crocker. Thanks, Betty!
Ingredients: (enough for 12 cupcakes)
3 cups powdered sugar
1 1/2 tbsp. vanilla
3/4 c. softened butter
1-2 tbsp. milk (in all actuality, it needs about 8-10)
|top 'em off with a few chocolate chips|
|top me with a choco egg, please!|
Many praise were given for the cupcakes, which always makes me happy. I take a lot of pride in everything I do, and it makes my day to hear that people love them! And while the chocolate cupcakes were so fantastic, I must admit, that the strawberry cake with the creamy frosting was the bomb DOT com. For reals.
Hope you guys enjoy!
