Strawberry Cupcakes Sweeten a Summer Wedding (Recipe)

strawberry cupcake
Have you ever noticed that when you cut a strawberry in half it looks like a heart? That alone should earn strawberries a place in your Valentine’s Day or summer wedding menu. Then there’s the flavor. Infuse cupcakes with that sweet strawberry goodness by simply adding a cup of pureed fresh strawberries to boxed vanilla cake mix batter. Top with a strawberry glaze.

Take a look at that cupcake: perfect for a shabby chic, farm, or picnic theme, or any summer backyard wedding reception.

Strawberry Cupcake Glaze Recipe

Enough for 24 cupcakes

1¼ cup (2 ½ sticks) butter, softened
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
¼ cup strawberry puree
5 cups powdered sugar

Blend the first three ingredients together in a large bowl. Gradually add the sugar while mixing the glaze.
