Yesterday was kind of gloomy here in GA, it was a perfect day to just be lazy-which is exactly want I did- Well, as lazy as my kids would let me be. J
Today however is the Big Game… and as I look out the window the prospect of sunny skies does not look promising…
On to sweeter thoughts-like my recipe for these lovely cupcakes. With all the amazing possibilities out there for GAME DAY food, I wanted to find something that could be enjoyed at any Super Bowl Party as well as kick off the “Month Of Love”
For the month of February there will be plenty of recipes for you to make for the sweetheart in your life-And most importantly, they will be EASY…
Strawberry Mascarpone Cupcakes
Recipe Adapted From Food Network
1 Box Vanilla Cake Mix (I used Duncan Hines Moist Deluxe French Vanilla)
1 (8-oz) container Mascarpone Cheese-chilled
½ cup of strawberries
¼ cup sugar
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon vanilla Extract
Confectioner’s sugar to sprinkle on top J
Special Equipment- 1 muffin tin – I used a really neat Filled Cupcake Muffin Pan
Make cupcakes according to package instructions. Lightly grease the muffin tin and fill the batter almost to the rim of each cup. Bake according to package directions and let cool.
In a food processor- combine the mascarpone cheese, strawberries, ¼ cup sugar, and lemon juice. Process the mixture until smooth. Transfer the strawberry mixture to a pastry bag fitted with a small tip. Push the tip gently into the bottom of a cupcake and squeeze in the strawberry mixture until the cupcake plumps. Continue process with the remaining cupcakes. Sprinkle with confectioner’s sugar.
