If You Don't Have a Pastry Bag
Spoon COOL WHIP into resealable plastic bag; seal bag. Cut off one bottom corner of bag; use to squeeze COOL WHIP into, and onto tops of, cupcakes.
Omit strawberries. Prepare and frost cupcakes as directed, using regular COUNTRY TIME Lemonade Flavor Drink Mix instead of the strawberry lemonade mix. Garnish with lemon zest instead of the strawberries.
Easy Strawberry Shortcakes
Bake cupcakes as directed; cool completely. Meanwhile, slice strawberries; toss with the reserved 1 Tbsp. drink mix. Refrigerate until ready to use. Split 12 cupcakes; serve topped with strawberries and COOL WHIP. (If wanting to use all the cupcakes to make 24 strawberry shortcake desserts, toss 24 sliced strawberries with 2 Tbsp. drink mix.)
