On my last trip to Costco I got a huge container of strawberries. They looked delicious and I couldn't resist! I don't think I have ever made strawberry cupcakes, so I figured now is the perfect time to try.
I used my Martha Stewart Cupcakes cookbook for the recipe for the cupcakes, and for the frosting I used a quick vanilla buttercream frosting recipe that I printed out ages ago by Gale Gand. I just added strawberry preserves to it to make the frosting pink and taste like strawberries.
My favorite way to fill the cupcake liners is to use a large scoop. It scoops an even amount into each cup, allowing them to bake evenly. Cool them on a cooling rack.
