Strawberry Icecream Cupcakes

Amy Alusa


I wanted to take some special cupcakes to a little girl on her birthday. I frequently take their family baked goods; but usually chocolate as that is what they all like. However, I wanted to try something else that would seem special for her...and it met with a resounding success from all. Everyone at my house loved them too!

How to Make Strawberry Icecream Cupcakes


  • 1Line muffin/cupcake tins with a decorative liner, or spray inside the cups of the tins with vegetable spray. Take your ice cream out of the freezer to soften up a little bit.
  • 2Mix the cake mix, eggs, water and canola oil. Fill cups 3/4 full. Bake at 350F for about 15-20 minutes, depending on how hot your oven is. Check them at 15, and if they do not bounce back when you touch the top of one, leave it a little longer. Do not over or under cook!
  • 3When cupcakes are completely cool, cut out a cylinder in the middle of each one (about a nickle size in diameter). Stuff center of each cupcake with softened ice cream. Work quickly. Place cupcakes (if possible in an airtight container) in freezer to keep ice cream from melting further and to let it harden up some.
  • 4Make 1 recipe of Ultimate Cream Cheese Frosting. (It is the absolute Bomb!)

  • 5If cupcakes are hardened up enough to work with (ice cream isn't oozing out!) then frost each cupcake generously and decorate with fresh strawberry butterflies. You make these by washing and hulling some fresh strawberries, pat dry. Cut each strawberry in quarters lengthwise. Position quarter sized strawberries with round side up and fanning out to look like a butterfly. Each cupcake will look slightly different. Cut a sliver of strawberry to look like the butterfly body. I can't seem to get the site online that I saw this at; but I am putting a link to the picture.
