Last week, my daughters were invited to a Lip Gloss Party by my good friend Tammy, who is also a homeschooling mama. All the kids that came got together and made their very own lip gloss out of Vaseline, coconut oil, beeswax, and almond bark – and had a blast in the process. Of course, us moms had a great time too. After all, there was adult conversation involved.😉
All the moms brought something, and I was assigned the cupcakes. Since Valentines is around the corner, I thought it would be relevant to do a cutesy Valentine-ish cupcake to bring, that didn’t take too much time to whip up. Looking through my baking cabinet, I found a box of strawberry cake mix and another of brownie mix – that I scored for free with some coupons a while back.
The idea seemed brilliant – chocolate brownies layered with strawberry cake in cupcake form.
So, that’s what I did. And, I loved the way they turned out. I don’t know whether to call this a recipe or simply a method. Either or – it’s a must make for Valentines or any other time of the year.
1 box brownie mix, mixed according to package directions
1 box strawberry cake mix, mixed according to package directions
½ batch of cream cheese frosting, or any other frosting that you want top them with
Preheat the oven according to the cake mix directions. Spray your cupcake pans with non-stick cooking spray. Put a spoonful of brownie mix in each cupcake hole, and top with 2-3 spoonfuls of strawberry cake batter. Bake according to the cake mix directions. Cool completely before frosting.
