Well...I haven't iced mine, yet...but I just tried one and while it tastes really yummy I can't see or taste any strawberry. I'll have to try again and use MORE strawberries.

Directions See How It's Made
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Fill a 12 cup cupcake pan with cupcake liners.
- Whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
- Add vanilla and strawberry puree to milk and set aside.
- In standing mixer, cream butter and sugar on medium-high speed until light and fluffy.
- Slowly add egg and egg whites and mix on medium speed until blended.
- With mixer on low speed, add half the flour mixture until just blended.
- Add milk mixture and mix just until blended.
- Add remaining flour mixture and mix just until blended. Scrape down bowl to make sure entire mixture is smooth.
- Divide batter between 12 cupcake cups and bake for approx 22 minutes or until tops are just dry to the touch.
- Frosting: Beat butter and salt on medium speed until light and fluffy.
- Reduce speed and gradually add confectioner's sugar and beat until incorporated.
- Add vanilla and strawberry puree and mix until blended. Do not overmix, or the frosting will incorporate too much air. The consistency should be dense and creamy, like ice-cream.
