These are super easy to make too!

Oh and if you don't want to put alcohol in them, you can just leave it out! No biggie :o)


white cake mix (i like betty crocker super moist)
1/2 c
1/2 c
1 - 10 oz
frozen strawberry daiquiri mix, thawed (undiluted)
egg whites
2 Tbsp
rum, barcardi limon works great
1 Tbsp
lemon zest
2 Tbsp
vegtable oil
1/2 c
4 oz
cream cheese
2 Tbsp
lemon juice
2 Tbsp
rum , barcardi limon
3-4 c
powdered sugar
large strawberries, diced fine
strawberry fans, if desired

Directions Step-By-Step

Preheat oven to 350. Line cupcake pans with 18 liners.
CUPCAKES: In a large mixing bowl, whisk together mix and flour.
With mixer on medium speed, mix in daiquiri mix, egg whites and egg, rum, lemon zest and vegetable oil. Then beat on high for 2 minutes.
Fill liners 2/3 full and bake at 350 for 18-21 minutes. Until toothpick inserted comes out fairly clean...let cool in pans 10 min then place on wire cooling racks until cooled completely then frost.
FROSTING: In large mixing bowl, cream butter and cream cheese together, add juice, rum and powdered sugar and mix until creamy and fairly thick, as the strawberries will juice slightly. Stir in diced strawberries and spread or pipe onto cupcakes.
Make strawberry fans and top cupcakes if desired.

Hello Wendy, I have made these cupcakes a bunch of times and always receive rave reviews. My question for you is, if I want to make this into a 2 layer cake, is there any part of the recipe I need to change? Thank you!

No question is a silly question! ;) Zest is the peeling of citrus...I use a super fine grater to zest a lemon or lime or orange and even grapefruit, you can buy a lemon zester at places like walmart. the following link is one of my favorite ones... but any fine grater, micro plane tool will work. AND if you go to a kitchen store, they will be happy to help you find one. Be sure when you zest you only use the colored area, dont go deep enough to get the pit (white stuff) as the pit is bitter. Hope I helped! :o) Take Care

BTW- if you don't care to go through the work of fresh zest (which is the most flavorful)...you can find dried zest in the spice area...but you don't use as much usually, it will tell you on the pkg
