Strawberry Jam Cupcakes


  • 1 White or Vanilla Cake Mix (and items needed to make them – eggs and oil as directed)
  • Strawberry Jam
  • Buttercream or Vanilla Frosting (can use can or make your own)
  • Red and Yellow Food Coloring
  • Strawberries (optional)


  1. Follow directions on cake mix box for baking cupcakes.
  2. While your cupcakes are baking, place your desired frosting in a bowl and add 3 drops of red food coloring and 1 drop of yellow food coloring. Mix well.
  3. Once your cupcakes have finished baking, allow them to coo.
  4. Once cupcakes are cool, use a spoon to scoop out the middle of the cupcake. Do not go all the way through the bottom of the cupcake. Just a hole big enough to add a dollop of jam.
  5. Fill your hole with a dollop of strawberry jam, taking care to not go too far past the rim of the hole.
  6. Place frosting on the cupcakes while also covering the hole. You can use a frosting bag to do this or a Ziploc bag, if you have one handy.
  7. Garnish with a strawberry if desired.
