Almond Cupcakes with Strawberry Cream Frosting

Almond Cupcakes with Strawberry Cream Frosting

We’re continuing on with Baby Shower Week here at The Pink Flour. Today, I have for you the {easy} recipe for the cupcakes I made for my best friend’s baby shower.

Once we decided on the children’s book theme, I knew I wanted to use the book Pinkalicious and make pink cupcakes (just like in the book!) Knowing there was other food I was making for the shower, I wanted to keep it simple. Therefore, I opted to doctor up a white cake mix instead of making from scratch.

For the frosting, I added strawberry jam to a basic buttercream recipe. You could make strawberry puree and strain the seeds from it, but since I was looking to make things easy and more time efficient I used the strawberry jam.

You’ve probably noticed there are some cupcakes that don’t have liners on them. As the cupcakes cooled, the liners pulled away from the cake, so I just took them off completely.  I think it had to do with the type of liners I used, but if anyone knows of another reason this could happen, I would love to hear it!
