Summertime Cupcake – Strawberry JAMboree

Strawberries remind me of the summertime.  I was bored the other night and I have been watching far too many episodes of Cupcake Wars on the TV. I was feeling just a tad bit adventurous. Of course I should have tried a bit more of a crazy items but for now I am pleased with my new cupcake.

I decided I wanted to use up my Philadelphia Cooking Creme and my homemade strawberry jam. I love cream cheese and strawberry on bagels. I thought why not!?!

These cupcakes are SOOO YUM!! I can’t wait to share this with you. However I had no clue what to  name this cupcake. Because I used not only my cake mix, strawberry Jam, Cooking Creme I also had a pudding mix in it as well (helps keeps it moist). So quite a few extras in my mix.

My wonderful fans on facebook – helped us pick a name.

We ran a quick contest asking what they would name my new cupcake. We had LOTS of great entries. However we really love what Julie Plemons with Thirty-One Gifts came up with. Strawberry JAMboree.  Please stop by to say hello to Julie Plemons at her website. Or stop by to see Julie at her Facebook Group- if you can and tell her congrats :)

Thank you Julie for naming our cupcake!!

I mixed up the yummy batter and put them into cupcake liners- baked 350 degrees for 13 minutes.

Once cooled- made some Strawberry Jam frosting to pipe on. :) I love that it turned a light pink on its own :) YUMMINESS.

Just for fun I put the cupcakes inside of a snowcone wrapper. Because I was feeling a bit summery. I love seeing the little specks of strawberry in the frosting. :)

(I found the snowcone accessories on clearance now at my local Target)

Strawberry JAMboree cupcakes are incredibly delicious. So moist and I love tasting real strawberries in them. You could easily make this with any favorite strawberry jam you have. I just make all our jams from scratch and can/process them so we have them to enjoy for a while.
