Summertime (in cupcake form!)
Part of my inspiration for these cupcakes came from a recipe my friend made for her Home Ec. class and from a recipe for a lemon Bunt cake from "The Cake Mix Doctor" by Anne Byrn (which I would highly recommend).

  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees and lightly grease 24 cupcakes liners.

  • Step 2

    Mix cake mix, Jello, oil, water and eggs in an electric mixing bowl. Once they are mixed beat them on high for 2-3 minutes. Grate in lemon zest and mix. (You can use however much you want depending on how Lemony you want your cupcakes)

  • Step 3

    Pour cupcakes batter evenly into cupcake liners and bake for 18-21 minutes. Cupcakes are done with they spring back slightly when touched and when you can stick a toothpick/skewer in them and it comes out clean.

  • Step 4

    Put cupcakes on cooling racks to cool. Let them cool COMPLETELY. (this usually takes 1-2 hours)

  • Step 5

    Once cupcakes are completely cooled, it's time to ice them! :D
    Whip your whipping cream in an electric mixer on high until it thickens and is a good enough consistency for your liking.
    (if you wanna be lazy, you can just use store bought whipped topping)

  • Step 6

    Lastly, apply the whipped topping; you can do this by either just scooping it onto the top or you can get all fancy and used a pastry bag (like you would use for icing) to make it all pretty. Then slice up some strawberries and put them on top in whatever fashion you deem fit.
    enjoy! ^-^

Sorry guys, i guess i forgot to list the jello. You need 1 box (3oz) of lemon jello. You can use either original or sugar free; I've used both and they turn out about the same.
