How to make Triple Strawberry Cheesecake Cupcakes

Step 2: Pour the strawberry syrup about 1/4 cup in a medium bowl then blend using an electric mixer. Add in milk, vegetable oil, and cake mix then mix while turning down the speed to low until all ingredients are well incorporated for 2 minutes. Beat eggs one at a time when adding to the cake mixture. Whisk properly for the eggs to fully blend with the mixture. Scoop out 1/4 cup of the batter then fill the muffin cups.
Step 3: Bake in the oven for 15 minutes. Use a toothpick to see if your cupcakes are fully cooked. insert a toothpick in the middle of 1 cupcake. If it comes out clean, your cupcakes are good to go!
Step 4: Pour the strawberry syrup about 1/4 cup in a medium bowl then blend using an electric mixer. Add the butter and cream cheese and beat at low speed until you achieve a creamy texture. Gently add the confectioners’ sugar while maintaining the low-speed mixing. The icing should become smooth. Now, add the strawberry extract then beat for 2 minutes at medium speed.
Step 5: Pour the icing into a star-shaped piping bag then apply icing onto individual cupcakes. Sprinkle the top with sliced strawberries. You’re go to go! Enjoy!
