Strawberry Fields Forever

Strawberry Cupcakes are calling! I made these cupcakes a few weeks ago for a friend's birthday and they seemed to be a hit. This is a recipe from my mom's cookbook, usually made as a cake. Mom always made it in the shape of a heart from Valentine's Day when we were growing up! They are easy to make and can be made a day or two in advance. Usually when I make cupcakes I love to use my icing gun to make the presentation of the icing really pop but this icing doesn't stand up very well but it still helped to ice them quickly and make them deliciously covered with icing!!!!
