Valentines Cupcakes

I NEVER watch Paula Dean, but I happened to come across it the other day when she was making a beautiful strawberry cake. In her recipe she tops the one large cake with a strawberry cream cheese frosting. I decided that I would make Chocolate Covered Strawberry Cupcakes instead.
The cake uses a white cake mix, box of strawberry gelatin and a bag of frozen strawberries. How easy!! Once the cupcakes cooled, I filled them with whipped cream and topped them off with a smooth dark chocolate Ganache.
They are pretty, festive and easy. I will be using this cake recipe again, perhaps with a whipped cream frosting with fresh strawberries on top for a summer party.
