On The Menu: Strawberry Lemonade Cupcakes

CONFESSION: I have never made cupcakes before...ever.  Shocking, I know.  I'm not really a cake or cupcake person, but I found this Strawberry Lemonade Cupcake recipe and decided it needed a try.  I think the thing that convinced me was the cream cheese icing made with real strawberries.  There are much prettier pictures on the blog I pulled this recipe from, but I attempted to document my experience, as always.

This recipe made 24 cupcakes perfectly.  I did have a lot of frosting leftover though.  I also only used three cups of powdered sugar (the recipe called for 3 - 4).  I probably should have used four to thicken up the frosting, but the taste was amazing.  Also, funny side note: I attempted to use the piping bag to frost a few of the cupcakes (You can probably tell by the photos which ones). As I was filling the bag, I looked down to realize our dog, Indiana Jones, was licking the tip of the icing bag as I was filling it.  He's a smart one.  Don't worry, I put a new tip on before I frosted anything.
