Strawberry Cream Cupcakes
My kids love strawberries and so do I. This time of year here in Georgia is strawberry picking time. This means we get to have a lot of fun and come home with a TON of strawberries.
Every year for Mother's Day, my kids will make me something and it almost always involves strawberries. I love when my kids cook me breakfast in bed or make me a cake because I know that they put some thought into it and it really is one of the best gifts ever!
I will freeze about 3/4 of the strawberries but with the rest I will make a few of my favorite recipes. These strawberry cream cupcakes are moist, fluffy and absolutely delicious. They are one of our favorite summer treats. They can be made quickly, travel well and make a great addition to a party.
