Preparation Time10 min

Cooking Time20 min


  • 1 1/2 cup butter, room temperature, divided
  • 1 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 3 teaspoons vanilla extract , divided
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk, divided
  • 4 cups plus 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 8 ounces strawberry cream cheese, softened
  • 2 to 4 drops red food coloring
  • white pearl candies (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a cupcake tin with cupcake liners.

  2. Beat together 1 cup of butter and 1 1/3 cups sugar together until fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time. Be sure to scrape down the sides of the bowl after adding each egg. Beat in 2 teaspoons vanilla.

  3. In another bowl sift together flour, baking powder and salt.

  4. Add in half of the dry ingredients. Beat in 1/2 cup of milk. Beat in remaining dry ingredients followed by 1/4 cup of milk.

  5. Fill cupcake liners 2/3 full. Bake for 20 - 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out with just a few crumbs on it. Remove cupcakes and cool completely.

  6. Combine strawberry cream cheese and 2 tablespoons of powdered sugar together in a bowl. Mix well. Stuff into a pastry bag fitted with a small tip. Use a paring knife to make a small hole in the middle of the cupcake but don't go all the way through. Squeeze a small amount of the filling into the cupcakes, the cupcakes may bulge a little.

  7. Use a mixer to beat remaining 1/2 cup of softened butter and remaining powdered sugar together until fluffy. Beat in remaining 1/4 cup of milk and remaining teaspoon vanilla. Drop a couple of drops of red food coloring into the frosting. Mix well. Add more if you want a deeper pink. Frosting should be stiff but spreadable.

  8. Stuff a piping bag, fitted with the decorating tip of your choice and frost cupcakes. Top with white pearls. Serve.
