Molly-is-coming-soon Strawberry Cupcakes!

ImageRecipe: A homemade strawberry cupcake and strawberry buttercream, both with fresh strawberries.

My friends Rachel and Sam are expecting a new addition to their family soon-a little girl named Molly. These are for her! : )

Strawberries were on sale at the grocery store over the weekend and they inspired me to retry the strawberry cupcake recipe I made a few years ago (and failed at). Well, to be fair, the cupcakes were great (and are this time around too!) but the buttercream recipe in my cookbook was incomplete compared to the instructions I later found for the same recipe online. This time, I decided not to take the risk and just used my standard vanilla buttercream, minus some vanilla, and plus a whole heap o’ fresh strawberries! YAY SUMMER.
