If you're thinking of making cupcakes and do not know how to decorate them, in this OneHowTo article we'll show you how to make strawberry frosting from scratch to give a different flavour to your desserts.
To make the strawberry frosting, start by crushing fresh strawberries. You can do so using a blender or similar. When you're done, put them aside and sift the powdered sugar to make it even finer.
Then with an electric beater, mix the sugar, butter and cream cheese. Beat until all ingredients are well mixed. Then add the mashed strawberries and continue beating.
Now, whip the cream to get the texture of frosting. Make sure not to overdo it because it will go back to liquid. When you're done, add it to the mixture and stir it in. If you want, you can add in a drop of liquid dye for a more vivid colour. As you see, making frosting for cupcakes is very simple.
Now put the homemade strawberry frosting in a pastry bag and decorate your cupcakes and cakes. As you can see, it's a very simple and quick recipe, not to mention a delicious one. If you like, you can use a whole or half strawberry as a decoration, or make fondant shapes like flowers.
