A fellow teacher hosted a tea party to celebrate summer vacation...yay!...so the occasion called for a summery strawberry cupcake. I made vanilla cupcakes with strawberry meringue buttercream, using the world's best strawberry jam...mmm...
Strawberries 'n cream
The cupcake recipe made more than the frosting recipe, so the next day I made some chocolate ganache for the extra cupcakes.
Cupcake surprise inside
They may look like ordinary vanilla cupcakes with chocolate frosting, but hidden inside is a sweet strawberry...yum!
