MSC – Strawberry Cupcakes

10-20-08 408 copy

These cupcakes are the perfect summer treat (aside from giant scoops of ice cream piled high with whipped cream and fresh strawberries, but that’s fodder for another post.) They come together quickly, the texture and taste are spot on, and they are SO refreshing. Even without frosting.

Yes, I am a Frosting Nazi. I find most frosting to be cloyingly sweet. A simple, unadorned strawberry coulis (read: fancy word for puree) is the PERFECT compliment to this delightfully pure and lightly sweetened yummy treat. Top it with a fresh berry, and there you have it: a perfect treat after a light summer brunch.

I’ll quit boring you and let the pictures speak for themselves ;)

  1. Hehe, I love the frosting modification. I made white chocolate cream cheese frosting instead and they complimented the cupcakes well.

    Love the oozing of the frosting down the liners . . . berry-licious!

    Thanks for baking along! xo
