Wendy's notes for this recipe:
Like my Margarita Cupcakes but different enough to post a new recipe! :o)
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)

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.

lol...thank you Jamie and Peggi! They are very pretty and very yummy!
AND so easy to make...I usually do everything from scratch, but this recipe as you probably seen is a mix, and of course I tweaked a lil, but this makes the nicest batter such a pretty pink and smells so good, like fresh strawberries...not artificial like some strawberry stuff...
I also think if you need a strawberry cake for anything you should do it this way, leave out the rum of course. It would be great with choc a chocolate covered strawberry :o)
