Sadly the strawberries are all finished producing in my garden.  I have to say most strawberries make it into the house, because I tend to eat them as I pick.

However, I had just enough left to make this unbelievable frosting.  For me this cupcake is all about the frosting, which is good enough that you may want to eat it all by itself.  I wouldn’t judge you if you did!  Cause you wouldn’t judge me right?  We’re friends like that.
