Strawberries were on sale, so it was time to figure out what to do with them. Because of my health, I am unable to do very much. However, baking seems to make me happy, well at least the menopausal side of me, hehehe. I can do a little..take a break..do a little more...take another break (okay, you don't want to know ALL the details)...and voila...strawberry cupcakes!
I always search the Internet to try and find the best recipe. You can pretty much pick out the good from the bad if you know anything about cooking or baking at all. Just mosey through the ingredients and see what's what! Sometimes you are just looking for easy. That's alright as well, but make sure you check out at least a few recipes for the same item. Trust me, you want to do this.
So as I was looking around at some strawberry recipes, I remembered having strawberry cupcakes with strawberry frosting when I was young. My Grandma raised me....miss you, Grandma! =) Everything she made was wonderful. I wish she had written a cookbook, the world would be a better place. But, I remembered her making a cake for one of my birthdays. It was strawberry lusciousness! I wanted to try and recreate that cake in the form of cupcakes. And that I did! I found the recipe on food.com. It was posted by Marsha D., but she actually got it from The Martha Stewart Show.....uh-huh..after you taste them, it all makes perfect sense!
