Adding the wafers on top is like having two treats in one. The soft texture of the cupcakes pairs perfectly with the crunch of the wafers.

Making homemade cupcakes isn’t hard to do just make sure that you have a nice and creamy batter once all the ingredients are added to put into your cupcake liners. This will make them light and fluffy and not spew over the top while baking.

My boys love all things strawberry so this recipe is always a win. It’s one of those recipes that looks fancy enough to serve to your family and friends at a party or gathering and is easy enough to whip up quickly to enjoy a nice snacking day at home.

Can you make homemade frosting for these cupcakes?

Absolutely. Store-bought is quicker but if you want to make your own frosting, go for it! Use your favorite frosting recipe and make sure to let the cupcakes cool completely before adding the frosting on top. A little bit of powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla mixed together makes an awesome homemade frosting, too!

Whipped cream frosting is also a favorite as well! I’ve also seen where some people add a few fresh strawberries on top or a little dab or strawberry puree as well and I think that looks yummy, too.

How do you keep cupcakes from drying out?

There are actually a few things that you can do to have moist cupcakes. One trick that I learned a long time ago is that a little (tiny) bit of sour cream or greek yogurt being put into the dry ingredients and wet ingredients when being mixed can help add a little bit of moisture.

The other tip is that you don’t want to overbake your cupcakes in the oven. Once you preheat the oven to 350 degrees, set the timer for the exact time you want them to bake, and then make sure to not let them overcook once they’re done.
