Week 49: Fresh Strawberry Cupcakes with Marshmallow Fluff Strawberry Frosting

I've been trying to find a good strawberry cupcake recipe and I think I found it in the new cupcake book called Cupcakes Galore by Gail Wagman! Layla could not keep her eyes (or her tongue) off the frosting! It's the first time in 49 weeks that she broke her stay...well, actually she said she did stay...the cupcakes moved!

The cupcakes turned out moist and on the dense side, rather than light and fluffy. One funny thing about the recipe was that it says it makes 12 cupcakes but calls for 2-1/2 cups of all purpose flour. Most of the recipes I use call for 1-1/3 cups for 12 cupcakes. I ended up being able to make 23 cupcakes out of one batch.

I made up my own Marshmallow Fluff frosting using butter, confectioner's sugar, vanilla, and a ton of fresh strawberries almost pureed in the food processor.
