Fresh Strawberry Cupcakes Recipe:
Strawberry cupcakes from scratch using fresh strawberries are a bit different from those using flavorings. AND much better tasting.
- For a light and fluffy result. Do NOT overmix cupcake batter. Ever. They will fall and get dense. Mix just enough to get the ingredients mixed. NO more.
Frosting and decorating:
- This is an easy buttercream to make IF YOU FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS. And unlike your cupcakes which don’t like to be overmixed. You will want to mix your buttercream until it is light and white and fluffy. That may take awhile.
- Put the frosting into a piping bag and pipe immediately onto cupcakes with a Wilton 2D Tip. The video in the recipe card demonstrate the basic technique for you
