  • 1 box Duncan Hines Classic White Cake Mix (18.25 ounce)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/3 cup oil
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup frozen lemonade concentrate, thawed.
  • sliced fresh or frozen strawberries--thawed
  • 1 16-ounce can of Duncan Hines Vanilla Frosting
  • 1 tablespoon grated lemon peel
  • red food coloring

Line cupcake pan with paper liners. Blend the cake mix with the water, oil, eggs, and lemonade concentrate for about 2 minutes on low speed. Fill the cupcake pan about 3/4 full with batter. Bake at 350 degrees for 16 minutes.

To make the frosting, combine 1 tablespoon of grated lemon peel with the can of prepared vanilla frosting. Add one drop of red food coloring to tint the frosting pink.

Remove the cupcakes from the pan and allow them to cool completely.

Remove the paper liners and cut the cupcakes in half horizontally. Press the bottom half into the glass jar. Pipe some frosting on this first layer and then place a spoonful of berries on top.

Press the top half of the cupcake in the jar and frost. Add some colorful candy sprinkles.

Put the lid on the jar and store in the refrigerator until party time!
