How To Make Strawberry Cupcakes For Halloween
Why do I recommend them for special occasions?
First of all, it recommends their appearance. It’s hard for me to imagine anything more festive than these small, delicate and tender cakes.
Secondly, the possibility of serving the dessert in individual portions saves you some hassle at a party.
Then, instead of a big cake of I don’t know how many kilograms, we can prepare assorted cupcakes, in several combinations of different flavours, so that we can satisfy the preferences of as many guests as possible.
For these strawberry cupcakes I used a strawberry muffin base and a vanilla icing.
For the muffin
For the icing
Preheat the oven to 180°C (356 °F) and prepare a 12-hole muffin tray with cupcake liners.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour and sugar.
Whisk together the eggs, yogurt, and melted butter in a large mixing bowl.
Little by little mix the wet ingredients into the dry until you have a homogeneous mixture, then fold in the strawberries carefully.
Fill the prepared cases to roughly three-fourths capacity.
Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until brown and a skewer inserted into the center of the muffins comes out clean. Allow to cool.
In the meantime, prepare the frosting.
Mix the sugar and butter until smooth, then add the milk, vanilla, and a few drops of red food coloring and mix until the icing is an even pale pink color.
Fill a piping bag equipped with a star nozzle with the frosting and pipe swirls onto the cooled cupcakes.
Decorate each with a little Halloween shape embeds and serve.
Enjoy, Good Appetite!
