BERRY SWEET CUPCAKE TREATS
Did you go strawberry picking this season? We forgot, and I simply can’t believe it, we’ve
gone every year until now, but thankfully the kids haven’t remembered that we haven’t been,
and as long as I have a constant supply of strawberries on hand they seem to be happy.
I even made these yummy strawberries and cream chocolate cupcakes.
These are great for a summer get-together with friends.
This is what you need to make these fun summer berry sweet cupcake treats:
• Chocolate cupcakes – yes I even used a box, sometimes you just want quick and easy
(of course I added in my homemade applesauce in place of the oil)
• Whipped cream
• Cupcake toppers (I’ll provide more details below)
Bake your chocolate cupcakes and set them aside to cool.
While cooling, make your cupcake toppers.
I found the cute paper fan wheels at Michael’s, pulled off the gem on the front and
attached ‘berry sweet treat’ labels
I had ordered from Bright Star Kids in their place.
I love these small round labels,
you can customize them using different fonts, colours, images and words and order them
in packets of 30 or 60.
I put one of the labels onto blank card stock to use as a template and cut out enough
to place over the top of a toothpick attached to the sticky back of the paper fan wheel.
By this time the cupcakes should be cooled.
Carefully slice the top off each and set it aside.
Slice strawberries into thin pieces too.
Alternate cream and strawberries on the top of the cupcake and return the cupcake lid to
the very top.
Place the cupcake topper into the very top to hold your strawberries and cream top together.
And there you have it a lovely berry sweet treat for summer entertaining.
