A recipe I made for cupcakes with real strawberries and strawberry flavour in them. Pretty easy and look great, and all natural flavouring and colouring!
Make the cupcakes:
i) beat 125g sugar and 125g butter/margarine
ii) add 2 eggs to this and whisk in
iii)add a handful of chopped strawberries and 1tsp vanilla and fold in
iv) fold in 125g flour
v) bake in muffin cases in medium-warm oven (gas5) until golden on top
Make up the icing by adding about 6 mashed strawberries (mash with back of a fork) to 50g butter/marg and 400g icing sugar. Put this in an icing bag.
Now decorate by icing the top of the cupcake and adding strawberries to the top! I also used some edible irridescent glitter to add sparkle.
