These cupcakes are truly easy to make, and they’re a special treat for your husband, wife, or children on Valentine’s Day or any time!
strawberry cake mix with ingredients needed for preparing
1 cup (2 sticks) butter (room temperature)
1/2 cup strawberry preserves
4 cups powdered sugar
4 tablespoons milk
red food coloring
Bake cupcakes according to directions on package.
After cupcakes are completely cooled, scoop out a small section from the middle of the cupcake (making sure to leave the bottom of the cupcake intact).
Fill the hole with sprinkles. (You may use some of the part you scooped to make a “lid” for the hole, or you can leave the hole and cover it with icing.)
Beat butter and strawberry preserves until fluffy and combined.
Add one cup powdered sugar at a time alternating with one tablespoon of milk at a time until desired consistency is reached.
Add red food coloring until desired shade of pink is reached.
Cover cupcakes with buttercream icing.
