HOME MADE STRAWBERRY CUPCAKES



Today I spent the day with my great niece, Trinity. I let her decide what we would do today.

She wanted to go to the movies, have lunch out, go swimming and make some strawberry cupcakes from scratch.

So we did.



I got out my Martha Stewart Cupcake cookbook and found a recipe for strawberry cupcakes. They sounded great so we used that recipe.

Let me tell you, they are great!



Rather then use the icing she did we made strawberry cream cheese icing. It tastes good but the strawberries made it rather runny. We added more and more powdered sugar and even stuck it in the refrigerator but it was still to soft.



They may not look that great but looks are not everything when it comes to cupcakes. They taste like heaven!

Next time I think I would use just plain cream cheese icing or use a strawberry buttercream.

Heck, these are great even without the icing.

The main thing is, we had a great day together. I love her so much and always have fun with her.

Hi, I just popped over from Cuisine Kathleen - I found her on The Tablescaper's Summer Sundays. Whew! It's exhausting but so much fun linking from one fantastic blog to the next. I have been looking for a strawberry cupcake recipe so I had to read your post to see how you made yours. I'll try Martha's web site to see if I can find the recipe. Thanks so much for delicious looking photos! Ciao, bella!

A thought just came to me while reading about the running icing... marshmallow creme. I don't know. Maybe use it instead of the sugar. It might hold the cream cheese and strawberries together better. If you try it, let me know if it works. LOL.
