The Ninja Baker's Not Ketchup Berry Cupcakes

Erika Kerekes, the creator of Not Ketchup, reported that many of our friends were enjoying the Blueberry White Pepper Not Ketchup with sweet things...I confess I was a bit skeptical. But, you never know until you try. And I'm glad I tried! My berry cupcakes infused with Blueberry White Pepper Not Ketchup turned out to be a burst of strawberry swirl and a touch of blueberry tang! 


For the cake:

  • 1 package strawberry cake mix
  • 1 cup milk
  • 3 tablespoons of Blueberry White Pepper Not Ketchup

For the frosting:

  • 1 container (8 ounces) whipped cream cheese
  • ¼ cup softened butter
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Blueberry White Pepper Not Ketchup

For the cake:
Substituting the milk for water, prepare the cake mix according to package instructions. Divide into cupcake cases in muffin tins. With a baby spoon drop US nickel-sized circles of blueberry sauce onto the batter. Swirl with a chopstick or knife. Bake according to package directions. You may need to add a minute depending on your oven and climate.

For the frosting:
Whip up the cream cheese and butter in a mixer. Pour in the blueberry sauce. Gradually add the powdered sugar.

Slather the frosting on top of cooled cupcakes. Decorate with purple sprinkles.
