For the Cupcakes:
Pour cake mix, and lemon pudding into mixer. Add the sour cream, water, oil, and eggs and beat for a few minutes. The batter is pretty thick. Scoop into lined cupcake tins and bake for 20 minutes at 350 degrees. Check with toothpick to make sure they're done. Let cool.
Lemon Buttercream Frosting:
Place the butter in your mixer. Add 4 cups of the powdered sugar, the juice and the zest. Beat until smooth and creamy. Gradually add the remaining sugar, 1 cup at a time, until it reaches the desired consistency. (I use about 7 cups altogether)
To assemble you will also need:
1/2 pint canning jars,
strawberries, fresh or frozen, sliced. (If using frozen berries, let thaw in a colander to remove the juices before using.)
Piping bag and large tip
pretty red ribbon of your choice
Take cooled cupcakes out of their liners and cut in half so there is the top and the bottom (hamburger style as my kiddo's call it). Place the bottom portion at the bottom of each jar. Pipe frosting over the bottom part and then top with some strawberries (3-4 slices works).
Then place the top half of the cupcake on top and cover with frosting again. To top it off you can either place a strawberry slice (I would only recommend this if you are using fresh strawberries) or some pretty red sprinkles of some kind look nice. Finish it off by tying a pretty red ribbon around the jar and you've got yourself some beautiful treats (or any day of the week treat for that matter)!!
