Kids Cooking Thursday: Strawberry cupcakes

Sadly just a box mix today, as I wanted to try out the Strawberry Baby Cakes box mix to see if it would suit for Miss Two's third birthday cake. Some of you may remember that she asked for a "blue" party, and a "Strawberry cake with blue icing". Well, the party has now been upgraded to Pink and Blue, because her favourite colour is now pink lol. But the cake request remains the same. I'm a bit iffy on these. They tasted liked strawberry bubblegum when raw, and only slightly better cooked. I did like the tiny cupcake option, since most kids don't eat much (if any cake) after licking off the icing, but I'd need more than the 18 that this box yields. If anyone has a great strawberry cake recipe they'd like to share, we'd be happy to try it! (PLEASE!) I'd prefer a strawberry flavour in the mix itself, but more than likely will add in extra fruit pieces to that as well.

Please leave a permalink to your own Kids Cooking Thursday post, as per the rules, and remember, if you don't leave a comment, that's fine, but I have no way of knowing you've left a link otherwise!

My son also likes to eat the icing and then leave the cake! The mini cupcakes are a great idea! I cannot help you with the strawberry cake recipe though, sorry.

ps could you make plain cupcakes & colour them pink with the added fruit pieces as a last option if you didn't have a recipe? just a thought, good luck!
