Strawberry cake is my favorite!! Recently I had THE BEST strawberry cupcakes (with strawberry icing) at a work luncheon. Come to find out, it was a Paula Deen recipe. So, you know I'm telling you the truth when I say it was the best!!! Well, since we were snowed in AGAIN today, I had plenty of time to make a delicious Weight Watcher's Potato Soup recipe and these amazing tasty treats. I did change it up a bit since I didn't have strawberry extract, but I used almond extract instead. (I usually add almond extract to all my cake batters to give it a little kick.) Also, I used frozen strawberries without syrup. I added a little extra strawberry puree to my icing and only used 4 1/2 cups of powered sugar. (I had TONS of icing left over after icing 36 cupcakes.) Before delivering the heavenly cupcakes to my neighbors, I cut out hearts and cupids from the Sweethearts cartridge (cut at 2 1/2 inches), attached them to toothpick and added them to the tops of the cupcakes. We enjoyed our strawberry dessert after our healthy dinner. YUMMO!!
