Day 1 of Cupcakes

March 30, 2010

Filed Under : EAT - RECIPES

The other day, I went on a cupcake rampage.  I baked the entire day and ended up with two different cupcakes and two different frostings.  Today, I’m going to show you my Strawberry Cupcakes and tomorrow I’ll do the Lemon Cupcakes with Citrus Icing.

First of all, these are Martha Stewart cupcakes and I don’t know about you, but I’m intimidated by anything Martha Stewart-related, whether it be her baking skills, crafting expertise, or just her all-around bad-assness.

I was nervous to make these cupcakes and needless to say, they were quite a challenge.  Both the cake and the frosting are meringue-based and that means very precise egg-white beating in a stand mixer.

But when all was said and done, they were so delicious!  The white cake was decadent, yet light at the same time.  And the Strawberry Meringue Buttercream?  Otherworldly.  Topped off with fresh strawberries and blueberries, these Strawberry cupcakes are the perfect springtime treat!
