Sprinkle Filled Cupcakes with Strawberry Buttercream Frosting

When I say these are super easy to make, I mean it. You can make this with your favorite homemade cake recipe or simply head to your favorite box. We used Strawberry mix for the cupcake itself.

Once you have baked your cupcakes you will want them to cool completely. Using a simple knife you will cut out the center of the cupcake. Make sure to leave a bit at the bottom and not cut the entire way through.

Simply fill the cupcake center with sprinkles! Lastly, you will want to add your Strawberry Buttercream frosting! This gives these the finishing touch. Below you will find the entire recipe for the frosting and I do hope that you try it because you will fall in love! We used Strawberry preserves in ours.
