Strawberry Cupcakes with Strawberry Icing

was really quite excited to try this recipe
cause it’s fro the famous Sprinkles
and they went on a program and baked their famous Strawberry Cupcakes.

it wasn’t too complicated
but using a handheld mixer wasn’t easy haha.
wish i had a proper mixer.
i miss my kenwood. (:

anyways. this is how it went!

out of the oven
a nice pinkish tinge
cause of the strawberry puree hehe

hehe baby caught a few shots of me putting the icing on the cupcake

too bad I didn’t have anything nice to put on it
to make it look prettier.

just to add colour hehe (:

4 oz (1 stick) unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 cup caster sugar
1 large egg

2. Add vanilla and strawberry to milk and set it aside.

3. In a standing mixer, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
Slowly add egg and egg whites until blended.

4. Add half of the mixture and when blended well,
add the milk mixture then add the rest of the flour.
Scrape down the sides of the bowl
and make sure entire mixture is smooth.

5. Divide the batter between 12 cupcake cups
and bake for about 20 mins or until the tops are dry to the touch.

Recipe :

(for icing, 12 cupcakes)

2 sticks unsalted butter, firm but not cold
1/8 kosher salt
3 1/2 cups of icing sugar, sifted
1/2 tso vanilla essence
2 tbsp pureed strawberries

Steps :

1. Beat butter and salt on medium speed until light and fluffy.

Do not overmix, or the frosting will incorporate too much air.
The consistency should be dense and creamy
like ice-cream.

    Hi Lianne, just came across your blog as I was searching for cupcakes recipes online. Was thinking of baking some for my son’s 3rd birthday. Strawberries are one of his fav… May I know what’s a kosher salt? Can I get it in Coles?

    Btw I really like your curls 🙂 you look great! Did you have it permed or you did that with curlers? (Sorry it’s kinda out of topic :p)
