Meet me at the Cupcake Cafe update!

So I said in my review that I'd been inspired to go and make some cupcakes. The big one (almost 4 year old girl) and I made them together. We decided on strawberry cakes with vanilla buttercream icing. We had a lot of fun making and decorating them and the result is below. I've since bought a piping bag so that we can do a bit more precision decorating. They were absolutely delicious. We used a standard cupcake recipe and added natural strawberry flavouring. I was a bit worried when I saw (after they'd gone into the oven) that the flavouring wasn't bake stable, but they turned out very well and the icing was delicious. I normally dislike buttercream so that was quite an achievement :)
