Strawberry Cream Cheese Cupcakes

For a going away party I was asked to bring dessert. I had cheese cake in mind, but when getting all the ingredients out, I didnt feel it and decided on the spot to go with cupcakes.

I still had a strawberry cake mix in the pantry, mixed it together, folded in some white chocolate morsels and baked all 18 cupcakes at 350 for 18minutes.

While the cupcakes kept rising, I put together cream cheese (8oz), 7 tbsp softened butter, 1 tsp vanilla extract, mixed that in my kitchen aid, sifted in 3 cups confectioners' sugar and mixed it together by hand until smooth and creamy. I used a star tip on my piping gun and completed the cupcakes with some gold shimmer sprinkles. 

Perfect cupcake for a sparkling girl! We will miss you Alex - but wish you all the Best in San Diego!!
