I made some changes, so I'm giving this 5 *s based on the finished product. I used a French vanilla cake mix, added an extra egg white, and left out the oil (that part was accidental). I added a couple of drops of red food coloring to the batter to counteract the grayness. I was worried about the cream cheese lumps in the batter, but they didn't affect the texture of the cupcake. (Next time I will blend the cream cheese first with the eggs and some of the strawberry puree.) The recipe made exactly 72 mini cupcakes (baked for 17 minutes). The texture was fluffy and light, and there was plenty of strawberry flavor. Maybe those who didn't get the flavor drained the strawberries? The recipe didn't specify, so I pureed them with the syrup. I topped them with a vanilla buttercream and slice of strawberry. They tasted like little strawberry shortcakes, but better. Everyone loved them!
