The Easiest Trick to Make Your Boxed Cupcakes Fancy

Boxed cupcake mix is the perfect dessert to whip up quickly for the whole family. But sometimes you want something a little more fancy. Here's Jamika Pessoa's super simple trick for taking your boxed cupcakes to the next level.

Hide a fruity surprise in the center!

First, make the cupcakes according to the directions on the box. When the cupcakes are cooled, carve out a hole at the top of each one. Make sure it's in the center.


For refreshing Strawberry Shortcake Cupcakes (pictured above), place a slice of strawberry in the hole. You can also use any fruit you want!

Top the cupcake with whipped cream. Place a piece of the fruit in the center of the cream to finish it all off!
