I am of the opinion that food does not have to be perfect to be delicious. Take my cupcake, left. For too long I did not allow myself to try things if I didn't think I could do it perfect the first time. Sheesh. I think my first time decorating cupcakes with whipped cream came out pretty good. Regardless, they were delish!
1 box angel food cake mix plus whatever ingredients your mix calls for
1 cup heavy whipping cream
2 T. sugar
4 T. processed strawberries*
*To make processed strawberries, put a handful of strawberries with 1 T. of heavy whipping cream in the food processor and pulse until you have a seedy, thick cream.
Prepare and bake angel food cake according to directions on the box. Use paper-lined muffin tins to bake. Let cool completely, and then remove the muffin paper.
Prepare the strawberry whipped cream. Whip cream until you have heavy peaks. Mix in sugar. Mix in processed strawberries until just combined. Put in plastic bag and cut corner to make a tip.
Using a small melon baller, scoop out center of each cupcake from the bottom, and reserve (you will use this to plug cupcake after filling). Hollow out each cupcake a bit more, discarding crumbs. Insert tip of plastic bag into each cavity, and squeeze to fill; replace plugs. Using remaining filling in plastic bag, decorate top of cupcakes.
