For as long as I can remember, every year for my birthday my mom has made me this homemade strawberry cake with strawberry icing. This year I got her recipe and decided to give it a whirl. They were just as fantastic as I remembered. The icing can be a little tricky, you don't want to put too much juice from the strawberries or it will be runny...not enough it won't get that great strawberry flavor. These are my favorite cupcakes in the world!
And here is a good how-to on icing cupcakes that I found via Pinterest.
