1
In a mixing bowl, mix the dry cake mix, jello powder and flour with 1 cup cooking oil. Add eggs, 1 at a time, mixing between each additon. Add water and mix well.
2
Measure 1/4 cup of strawberry juice from thawed strawberry package and put aside for frosting. Take remainder of juice and strawberries and place in a bowl. Chop the strawberries or mash them. (I mashed them).
3
Pour the strawberry mixture into the mixing bowl and blend with cake batter. Line 24 to 30 cupcake holders with liners. Pour batter into each cupcake liner 2/3 full. Bake 16-18 minutes at 350 degrees. (test with tooth pick to make sure done)

While cupcakes are cooling on cooling rack, Mix 2 sticks butter, box of powdered sugar and reserved juice with a mixer. Frost cooled cupcakes with frosting. May add sliced strawberry on top for garnish, or decorate to your liking.

Place frosted cupcakes in an air tight container. Refrigerate after 1 or 2 days. These cupcakes are delicious at room temperature or refrigerated.
