  • 3 egg whites

Whisk egg whites, orange juice, water, oil and vanilla together in a bowl. Whisk in cake mix. Whisk for 2-3 minutes until lumps are gone. Pour batter into muffin pan lined with cupcake liners. Will make 12 large cupcakes or 18 standard cupcakes. Bake at 350 degrees for 18-20 minutes. Cool completely.

Strawberry Frosting:

Purée chopped strawberries in a blender. Pour puréed strawberries into a small saucepan. Cook over medium low heat for 10-15 minutes until reduced. Stir often. Reduction should yield 3 tablespoons. Cool.

Beat softened butter in a bowl with a hand mixer. Add powdered sugar, vanilla and salt. Beat for 2 minutes, scraping down sides of bowl as needed until fluffy. Beat in cooled strawberry reduction.
