Pretty in Pink Strawberry Cupcakes

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by SkinnyMinnie

A sweet treat any time of year, but especially great when strawberries are in season. I don't frost them....they are great as is, but a good cream cheese frosting would be great I think.

I try to avoid recipes with processed foods in them but this was the recipe used for my niece's first birthday...I gotta admit that they were good and very PINK! Pretty in Pink is a fitting title. A lot of strawberry flavor to them. Top them with strawberry buttercream and you have a cupcake any little girl will want at her next party. And I will also comment that they were moist but not oily or greasy, a big thumbs up for that.
