These bright, fun, and easy M&M Cream Cheese Cupcakes are perfect as a lunchbox treat…
There are all kinds of cupcake liners out there to suit any occasion or event that you may have. Although I am not much of a cupcake person, I love to check out the liners as they are so fun and colorful. I use them for separating foods in the bento boxes I pack for Ro-Ri San and the boys. While silicone ones are better for packing foods with gravy, paper liners work for drier foods like rice cakes, meatballs, and tempura. They just brighten up the bento box.
While grocery shopping last week, I came across these cute liners with flower and bunny picks. As it has been a while since I made cupcakes, I thought it might be fun to make a few for Easter. With the abundance of strawberries out there, I wanted to make Strawberry Cupcakes. I did a search on the web and found these delightful Strawberry-Lime Stuffed Cupcakes from the Food Network.
I made a few changes to the recipe by reducing the butter and adding some strawberry puree to the cake mixture. I also used lemon instead of lime for the frosting. The cupcakes turned out to be very tasty and quite delicious.
I cut the strawberry down to size to fit inside a regular cupcake.
That’s the bunny in the cabbage patch. Just like an Easter egg hunt, will this bunny know how to retrieve the hidden strawberry in the cupcake?
Enjoy…..and have a wonderful day! 🙂
