Grease or line large or mini muffin/cupcake tins with paper baking cups. Spray with non-stick baking spray; set aside.
In a large bowl equipped with beater attachment, beat cake mix, oil, water and eggs until smooth. Remove bowl from mixer and gently fold in Lucky Leaf® Strawberry Pie Filling a little at a time, to create swirls.
Fill cupcake liners (2/3 cup scoop for full size and 1/3 cup for small size). Bake 2023 minutes for regular or 16-17 minutes for minis, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Cool on racks completely before frosting. Frost each muffin generously and top with a dollop of pie filling.
