It just so happens that today is my birthday. Being born so close to Valentine’s Day, I often ended up with strawberry flavored birthday cakes. Not that I mind. You might be anti-cake mix. Most of the time, I prefer from scratch cakes, myself. But there’s something about strawberry cake from a box that I simply can’t walk away from.
Wanting a sweet little treat for my Brit this year, who happens to love strawberry cake as much as I do, I decided to experiment with a box of Pillsbury pudding-in-the-mix strawberry cake mix, some cream cheese, and enough Valentine’s Day sprinkles to make even Elle Woods jealous of the pink.
I mean, you made candy. At least, that’s how it looks to little kids and husbands. That’s good enough for me, you know? Not to mention biting through that candy-shell provided by Candiquik is completely addicting. As for sprinkles? Everything is better with sprinkles, amiright? I put sprinkles in the filling and on top of each truffle. Because: sprinkles.
I have yet to find an organic strawberry cake mix, but if they exist, let me know! You could also try this with an organic vanilla cake mix and a box of strawberry jell-o. Or just make vanilla cake mix truffles. The sprinkles will do the heavy Valentine’s Day lifting anyway.
