To finish off our Valentine week, I am looking back at a recipe for perfect cake mix cupcakes. It makes any boxed cake mix taste more like homemade. Also, I have a tasty strawberry jam buttercream frosting that I like to make to go on these. So you get 2 recipes today!
With the strawberry jam buttercream frosting, you use jam to give it flavor and color. If you want a little more color you can always add a little food coloring.
These two recipes together are fabulous, but they are also great own their own. If you want to make these perfect cake mix cupcakes even more decadent, you could top the cake with the same ganache I used in this recipe. Then frost with the strawberry jam buttercream and top with a chocolate dipped strawberry!
