For her birthday, my daughter requested a vanilla cupcake with strawberry frosting. I am so glad I came across the recipe for Pink Confetti Cupcakes by Your Cup of Cake. I thought the recipe for the icing on these would be just perfect.
I followed the recipe exactly as written. I used fresh strawberries and put them through the food processor to make the puree. I wasn’t sure what Lizzy meant by 1 tbsp of strawberry gelatin, but I just put in the dry gelatin from the box and that seemed to work great.
I used the full 5 cups of powdered sugar that the recipe called for and my icing was still a little bit thin for piping. Next time I will probably use about 6-8 cups of powdered sugar for a stiffer icing.
This icing was the bomb! I have never in my life tasted a strawberry icing that was so fresh with so much flavor. This will definitely be my go to strawberry icing.
