For the Cupcakes

Cooking spray
1 standard box plain white cake mix
One 3-ounce box strawberry-flavored gelatin
2/3 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup frozen sliced strawberries in syrup, thawed
4 large eggs

For the Icing

1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, at room temperature
1 cup icing sugar
1 cup frozen sliced strawberries in syrup, thawed
Special equipment: two 12-cup cupcake pans

For the cupcakes:

1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Spray 2 cupcake pans with cooking spray.

2. With an electric mixer, beat the cake mix, gelatin, oil, strawberries and a 1/2 cup water until fully combined. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Pour the batter into the prepared pans. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cupcakes comes out clean, about 20 minutes. Let cool in the pan, and then remove before icing.

For the icing:

1. In a blender or food processor, puree the butter, sugar and strawberries for the glaze until smooth; it may take a few minutes to come together. Poke holes in the cupcakes with a toothpick, then spoon the icing over, allowing some of it to seep into the cake. Store the cupcakes, covered in the refrigerator, for up to 2 weeks.
