Strawberry Buttercream cupcakes

Strawberry Buttercream cupcakes

  Our dog Talia recently had her 3rd birthday and I was after an excuse to make cupcakes. I thought she might like strawberry and so I hunted and pecked the Pinterest until I found this recipe. Let’s make some batter! It’s pretty standard vanilla cake batter. I’ve got just 2 exciting photos for you. The dry goods, and the completed batter in the muffin cups. On to the buttercream frosting. Blender up some strawberry puree.  The basic ingredients are butter (not shown), the puree, heavy cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract. Mix it all together and you get this pretty fluffy stuff. This lovely gadget was given to me by my mom for my birthday. I haven’t had ample opportunities to play with it but I knew now would be a good time. How pretty are these??? Boxed up and ready to roll to a Cinco de Mayo...
