Strawberry Cream Cheese Icing

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.

Margarita Cupcakes

Here is another delightful looking cocktail flavored cupcake.  I just think these are such a wonderful idea for an afternoon party or get together with friends, not to mention that the recipe from Lori @ Recipe Girl looks absolutely devine.

I love me some margaritas, but I also love a really good strawberry and I am wondering if these could be adapted into strawberry margarita cupcakes as well. I think it would be a great flavor combination and I just may have to try it out!
