Made From Scratch Strawberry Cupcakes




Strawberry cake is probably my favorite cake. Strawberry cake that doesn't come from a box IS my favorite cake. This recipe is a bit time consuming, but the product is well worth it. The additional of real strawberries and whipped egg whites makes this cake batter flavorful and light. Topped with cream cheese butter cream icing, you will be in love this Valentine's Day. (Who's gonna be the first to make fun of me for that??)

I made these cupcakes this morning,OMG they are they are the bomb. I made the frosting also but instead of the cream, I had some of the pureed strawberries left over, so I used that instead. It added just a hint of flavor and a very pretty light pink color. I will definetely make this recipe again.
