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.
