with strawberries and whipped cream filling! These came out really cute... I hope everyone enjoyed them... They seemed to, at any rate!
The process was slowed down just a little when I realized I had forgotten to thaw out the strawberries the day before-- end result -- a frozen "brick" of strawberries!
Solution: Heat up in micro long enough for them to thaw out so I could remove them from the container!! This worked fine... except it changed the consistency and I no longer had those nice slices of strawberry-- it was more like a "mush."
So, I got really creative and made a strawberry sauce" almost like making jam, but not cooked as long-- just long enough for the strawberries to stew and become sauce-like in texture... It was perfect!
I then cut the cupcakes in half and "stuffed" them with whipped cream and strawberry sauce!
