Yellow Cakes with Strawberry Frosting

I found a 24 small muffin tin on clearance the other day and had to try it out. I made some yellow mix mini cupcakes for work the other day to celebrate the engagement of a co-worker. I also made a strawberry butter cream frosting.

I used some strawberry extract and also some strawberry puree in the frosting.

I used a box mix for the cakes.

12 tbsp. unsalted butter, at room temperature
4 cups confectioners' sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 tsp. strawberry extract
2 tbsp. heavy cream
some strawberry puree (about 1 cup strawberries with some sugar put them in a food processor until smooth)

Beat the butter in the bowl of an electric mixer until smooth and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Mix in the confectioners' sugar until incorporated. Add the extracts and beat on medium speed until well blended. Add in some strawberry puree (try not to water down the frosting) . Add in the heavy cream and beat on medium-high speed for about 4 minutes, until light and fluffy.
