Strawberry Cupcakes

These are so delicious. I really really want some right now! I unfortunately I made them this past June when the strawberries were perfect. This is a really fun recipe. It is from Martha Stewarts, "Cupcakes" recipe book. You can get the recipe here. There are NOT the sprinkles recipe that she has posted before, that I have tried, and that I did not like.

So I never just follow a recipe so here is what I changed about it. I made the cupcake base, which is really just a vanilla cupcake batter. Instead of cutting up the strawberries and folding them in I didn't (look at the picture on the bottom). I sliced up the strawberry and put a thick slice and pressed it into the batter. Trust me it was so good to bite into the cupcake and have this tasty little treat right in the middle.  The top picture is the "Strawberry Meringue Buttercream". So I followed the recipe exactly. It turned out tasty, but it did not look like the picture on her website, or in her cookbook. It did work out though. I got rave reviews from everyone I shared these with. I personally couldn't stop eating them. Try them out and let me know what you think.
