So I think I have developed a thing for bridal showers. I made two different types of cupcakes for a small bridal shower that we had for two ladies at my job and I am planning one for two of my close friends who are getting married in April. Let me tell you, I have never been more excited about anything in my life within these past few years. I really like the strawberry flavor in cakes, but I’m not crazy about them in tarts or pies. I wonder why that is. I definitely recommend using strawberry extract. It will enhance the flavor. I really love this small pastry company’s ingredients called Bakers Kitchen (if you are in the Cincinnati, OH area you can find their goods at Jungle Jims)
As most of you food bloggers know, it would take a second job to buy all of the cool pans, extracts, spatulas, appliances, and culinary torches. But whenever I have some extra money, I definitely invest in some wonderful ingredients or cookware. I recommend using their stuff. It is really awesome! I recommend that you make it your life’s mission to collect different extracts because you never know when they can come in handy and what you can do with them. I know this strawberry extract is going to last me forever but at least I will always have it.
Now back to the cupcakes, enough jibber jabber, here is the recipe. I really hope that you enjoy them.
