Strawberry Cupcakes

Strawberry cake is probably my favorite cake. Strawberry cake that doesn't come from a box IS my favorite cake. This recipe is a bit time consuming, but the product is well worth it. The additional of real strawberries and whipped egg whites makes this cake batter flavorful and light. Topped with cream cheese butter cream icing, you will be in love this Valentine's Day. (Who's gonna be the first to make fun of me for that??)
