Strawberries and Cream Cupcakes

As the sun has been shining quite alot recently making it feel like summer time may actually be here I thought I'd make something with a summery feel to it! After much thought and much flicking through my baking books I decided to go for Strawberries and Cream Cupcakes. Lovely British strawberries are now in season and I can't get enough of them at this time of year so
couldn't wait to try baking with them.

I used the recipe from the Primrose Bakery cupcake book and it turned out perfectly. The cake mixture has crushed strawberries mixed into it. I've never used real strawberries in a cake mixture before and was quite pleased with the result. The cupcake is then filled with a teaspoon of strawberry jam in the centre, iced with vanilla butter cream and finished with a whole strawberry on the top...yum!

Don't they just look so cute in my cake tin?! As it was Father's Day today and we were off for a roast at Karl's Dads I took some round with me which seemed to go down well!
