Preheat the oven to 180°C (160°C for fan assisted ovens)/Gas Mark 4. Place 24 muffin or cupcake paper cases into 2 x 12-hole muffin trays.

Make up the cake mix as directed on the box using the oil, water and eggs. Divide equally between the paper cases.

Bake in the oven for 18-22 minutes, or until risen and just firm to the touch. Transfer to a wire rack and leave to cool completely; about 30 minutes.

Spread the vanilla icing over the cupcakes (reserving 1 tablespoon of the icing). To serve, top each with 1 upside-down strawberry and place an additional dot of the reserved icing onto the end of each strawberry for the hat bobble.
