  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Make and bake cake mix as directed on box for 24 cupcakes, using colored paper baking cups. Cool 10 minutes; remove from pan to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
  • 2
    While cupcakes are cooling, in medium bowl, beat cream cheese, butter, milk and vanilla with electric mixer on low speed until smooth. Gradually beat in powdered sugar, 1 cup at a time, on low speed until smooth and spreadable. Set aside.
  • 3
    Place decorating tip with very small opening (about 1/8 inch) into disposable decorating bag or resealable freezer plastic bag. Spoon jelly into bag. Insert tip into center of each cooled cupcake, about halfway down; gently squeeze bag, pulling upward until cupcake swells slightly and filing comes to top. Wipe tip occasionally to remove crumbs.
  • 4
    Frost each cupcake with about 2 tablespoons frosting. Decorate with candies.

Expert Tips

  • Using strawberry jelly instead of preserves prevents pieces of strawberries from getting stuck in the tip.
  • Want to use for a different occasion? Use different paper baking cups, candies or colored sugars.
