Strawberry Cupcakes & Limeade Slush

I made the yummiest strawberry cupcakes with cream cheese frosting for my little sister's bridal shower a few weeks ago.

  • White Cake Mix
  • 4 Eggs
  • 1 C. diced Strawberries
  • 1/2 C. Oil
  • 1/2 C. Water
  • 1/2 - 1 C. Flour
  • 1 large package of Strawberry Jell-O
Mix all ingredients together, and bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes. You could always make white frosting and add fresh strawberries in it to make a strawberry frosting. My grandma makes this as a cake and chills it in the fridge. It's so yummy!

I also made Limeade Slush! Wow - I will definitely make this during the summer for something delicious and cold!

  • 1 Can Frozen Limeade, slightly thawed
  • 1 C. Sugar
  • 8 C. Water
  • 1 liter of Lemon-Lime Soda
Mix all the ingredients together until the sugar is dissolved. Freeze until solid (or mostly solid.) I used quart sized Ziploc bags (I opened the bag and used a large measuring cup to 'hold' it open for me while I poured the limeade into it. I then laid all the bags flat in a metal pan and put them in my freezer so they would freeze flat for easy storage. It took overnight for my limeade to get mostly frozen.

To assemble, pull the limeade slush out, and slightly thaw. Break up slush in a punch bowl or pitcher, pour lemon-lime soda over and serve! Garnish with sliced limes and lemons.
