Aren’t these just the cutest Strawberry Cupcakes. The strawberry fondant topper on top the strawberry buttercream frosting just makes these cupcakes perfect.
The strawberry fondant is very easy to make and the kids will love helping you, as fondant is kind of like playdough but much sweeter and edible.
There is nothing better than homemade strawberry buttercream frosting. It is so good that when I make it I have to stand guard by it until I get done frosting the cupcakes or cake because my family will eat it by the spoonful.
- 12 of your favorite vanilla cupcakes
- ½ cup butter softened
- 2 cups icing sugar
- 1 tbsp strawberry jam
- 2-3 tbsp milk
- 1 large strawberry
- 4-5 oz. red fondant
- 1-2 oz. green fondant
Ensure that your cupcakes are cool to the touch before decorating.
Using an electric mixer, beat together butter, icing sugar, jam and milk. Mix until ingredients are smooth and well-combined. If the buttercream is too runny, add icing sugar, one tablespoon at a time.
Dice your strawberry and add into your buttercream mixture. Fold well.
Using a piping bag with a large star tip, frost each cupcake.
Separate your red fondant into 12 1-inch spheres. Give it a pointed end and flatten the top (this will give it its strawberry-like shape).
Take a small pinch of your green fondant and place on top of each red fondant shape. Then take smaller pieces of the green fondant and roll it to look like a stem. Place 1 to 3 on top of each strawberry fondant.
Using a toothpick, pierce small holes all over the strawberry fondant.
Top each cupcake with your fondant creation. Serve and enjoy!
