Ingredients Makes 18 - 20 cupcakes

Paper Liners (optional)
1/4 cup butter, softened 60 mL
1 cup all-purpose flour 250 mL
1/2 cup granulated sugar 125 mL
3 tbsp strawberry-flavored gelatin powder 45 mL
1/2 tsp baking soda 2 mL
1/2 tsp baking powder 2 mL
1/4 tsp salt 1 mL
1 egg, at room temperature 1
1/3 cup sour cream 75 mL
1/4 cup milk 60 mL
1/2 tsp vanilla extract 2 mL
Buttercream Frosting, tinted pink


  1. In a large bowl, using an electric mixer on medium-high speed, beat butter for 1 to 2 minutes or until fluffy. Add flour, sugar, gelatin, baking soda, baking powder, salt, egg, sour cream, milk and vanilla; beat for 1 to 2 minutes or until smooth.
  2. If desired, place paper liners in wells. Fill each well with about 11⁄2 tbsp (22 mL) batter. Bake for 6 to 8 minutes or until a tester inserted in the center of a cupcake comes out clean. Transfer cupcakes to a wire rack to cool. Repeat with the remaining batter.
  3. Frost with pink Buttercream Frosting.
Vary the color and flavor of the cupcakes by selecting a different flavor of gelatin, such as orange or blueberry. Be sure to use a matching or complementary frosting color. Seal leftover flavored gelatin in a sealable plastic bag, label and store in the cupboard for up to 3 months.
