Rose Bouqet Strawberry Birthday Cake

I saw this recipe shortly after we had picked strawberries and KNEW I needed to make these. They did not disappoint! These cupcakes turned out very light so next time I may just use 3 whole eggs. Some reviewers on the original post talked about this. We really liked these and they freeze well.

Frosting Directions

In a medium bowl, add cream cheese and butter, whip till light and creamy, about 3 minutes. Add liquids and blend. Slowly add powdered sugar while mixing, (to keep the sugar from decorating your counters and appliances, not including you.)
At this point you may need to add more powdered sugar. You are trying to achieve a medium stiff consistency. Whip for several minutes.Google Recipe View Microformatting by   Frost F     F  ZipList Recipe Plugin1.4
