Strawberries and Cream Cupcakes Recipe

| June 24, 2016 | 21 Comments

 

I love the summer time. Fruits and vegetables are ready to be picked and are as tasty as they are vibrant. One of my all time favorites snacks ever is strawberries and cream. Not only is it refreshing, but it is also healthier than most snacks that you can pick. Something about the tanginess of the strawberries mixed with the sweetness of the cream, it makes my taste buds explode. One day sitting at home with my teens, we decided that we were bored and wanted to go somewhere. Our local strawberry patch has just opened, so we packed ourselves up and headed to the berry fields. 

Once we got back, I had to try and figure out what to do with all of these strawberries that we picked. Trust me, there were a ton of them! Some were short and plump, some were long and thing, and some were simply perfect. Recently, I cannot get enough of making cupcakes. I love to go in the kitchen, start a mix from scratch and make a delicious cupcake. It is so rewarding. With that beingsaid, I decided I wanted to make Strawberries and Cream Cupcakes.

You are just going to love my cupcakes! They are so easy to make! Enjoy!
