Spring Strawberry Lemon Cupcakes

8 years ago

 I know it’s been a while since I’ve actually cooked or baked
something and I do apologize for my recent food extravagance but it’s
been an exciting few weeks of food events and birthday dinners.
Fortunately I had some time on my hands this weekend to do some baking
and just in time for my friend Allie’s birthday.

Although I’m a huge fan of Crumbs among other fine cupcake
establishments, I wanted to bring Allie something from the heart AND
something seasonal. Seasonal means limited which translates into
special and THAT is what I wanted my birthday sweets to convey. Store
bought cupcakes are wonderful but homemade cupcakes, well they’re a
rare treat.

Since I happened to have some fresh strawberries and lemons on hand,
I scoured the internet for a cake recipe that balanced the sweetness
and tartness of both ingredients. And after seeing only a photo of the Strawberry and Lemonade Cupcakes baked by Annie’s Eats, I knew I’d found the perfect spring cupcake!
