I have the perfect Strawberry Lemon Spring Cupcakes that are quick and easy to make and so stinkin’ cute topped with a Peep. I wanted a lemon cupcake that was topped with a light, sweet strawberry frosting that Riley and her friends at daycare could enjoy with their Bunny Tail Mix Push Pops. Based on her taste testing tonight, I’m absolutely sure these will go over well at daycare.
Strawberry Lemon Spring Cupcakes
Over the weekend I picked up a pack of Jello with the intention of using it to create Strawberry Lemonade cupcakes that would be similar to my Blueberry Lemonade Cupcakes. I quickly changed my mind after a long day at school and a three year old helper that was heavily underfoot. I went a little semi-homemade and used the lemon cake mix from Betty Crocker for the cupcake batter. I then used my Strawberry Jello in my frosting and topped each cupcake with a Peep. The strawberry frosting is the perfect 7 minute frosting and couldn’t be easier. You can find the recipe for the frosting here.
I’ll be sure to make these cupcakes again, but without the Peep. They’d make a super, simple Strawberry Lemon Cupcake perfect for a bridal or baby shower.
