Last year I lived in Provo and I loved our location. We had plenty of friendly neighbors very close to us (some of my best friends I’ve ever had), BYU campus only a few blocks away, a little park kitty-corner, and my favorite part was the library was only a short walk away. I often would go there daily with Levi. I really got into checking out cookbooks and one of my favorite books I checked out was 101 Gourmet Cupcakes. It was a very simple book using cake mixes to make incredible cupcakes. Of the ones I tried this one was my favorite and a hit with everyone who I shared it with.
I remembered my brother-in-law James really liked them so this year I baked them up again for his birthday. I think strawberry shortcake is really good but I think these cupcakes are amazing! I love how soft they are and fun to eat.
Something else I like about these cupcakes is that they are not too sweet. Some cakes or cupcakes can be way too sweet for my liking. These are the perfect sweetness. 🙂 The whipping cream is a nice light touch to the cupcakes. You can use the recipe for whipping cream I’ve included or you can just buy cool-whip and even use the lite cool whip. Either way it’s very good!
