strawberries and cream cupcakes




ah strawberries again some of you will say , it is very simple I had a few strawberries and wanted to do something, before they disappeared, and I found this recipe I had saved in my cook notebook .
These little strawberry cupcakes have a delicious jam centre once you get past the strawberry and cream topping!
