MSC Cupcake Club: Strawberry Cupcakes

Strawberry cupcakes! What a thought. This is a perfect pick for June. I’ve made strawberry muffins before, but not strawberry cupcakes. This recipe is from Martha Stewart’s cupcake book and is the June selection for the MSC Cupcake Club.

The cupcake batter was lovely and wonderful tasting – I could have eaten a bowl just of that. Sigh. They baked up nicely. I was hesitant about the frosting – strawberry buttercream. I tend not to do well with Martha’s frostings, but I went for it. It’s a basic buttercream with pureed strawberries added at the end. I took my time and it turned out well I thought. I didn’t get out the cake decorating tips – ugh. Instead I just sort of free-form glopped frosting on top of these. They looked cute I thought. They tasted pretty good too. They got a thumbs up from everyone, except Teen Martha, who wouldn’t even try one because “I don’t like fruit in my cupcakes.” My only complaint was that they weren’t chocolate! They were moist and did taste like strawberry. Now I have a refrigerator full of cupcakes which I am quickly going to give away so they don’t end up on my hips!

  1. If there wasn’t an ocean in the middle of us I would be ringing on your door to eat one of these cupcakes – they look great! In fact, I was looking at the recipe at the weekend – now I will have to make up my own batch!

    Thanks for baking along with me! I was obsessed with the frosting as well. I had sooo much trouble with my icing tips. First my own one broke, then I borrowed a neighbors and hers was very mini, and finally I called another neighbor who gave me their cookie press which functioned as an icer. I felt like I was working with power tools!

    Looks great! I totally know what you mean. I try to cut down the recipe until its only 1 egg because then I don’t have to worry about eating too many cupcakes.

  6. Wow, that just sounds really good! I’ve been all over the strawberries at the market this year and I might have to try this recipe!!

    Sounds like yours turned out really well. Mine didn’t do so well, but I think I’ll give this one a try sometime in the future. Oh well, I guess I’m not Martha after all! 🙂

  11. These look awesome. You’ve now made me hungry for strawberry cupcakes! 🙂

    They look rustic! I would dive face first into the frosting because sometimes it just tastes better when its messy 🙂
