Ooohhh! These are really good! And the word we all love… EASY! Is your mouth watering yet! I thought these would be perfect for your Summer Lemonade Stand or Bake Sale’s. BTW, here is a FREE printable for decorating your Stands and making them cute and desirable (not like my kids stands where they pull anything out of the garage and use it to put the lemonade on! HA!) If you are reading this and you live in my neighborhood, don’t even think about using these for your own kids, I call it first!! 😉 (just kidding… kind of)

Strawberry Buttercream Frosting
This recipe makes a LOT of frosting, you could cut it in half, but I like to make more for chocolate cupcakes, and homemade Oreos too 🙂
4 large strawberries at room temperature
2 sticks of butter, at room temperature
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
about 2 pounds powdered sugar
2 tablespoons heavy cream
Chop strawberries finely and place on paper towel to soak up some of the moisture. Add butter to bowl and beat with a mixer until fluffy, add vanilla and about 2 cups of the sugar. Blend well, incorporate cream. Add in small amounts of powdered sugar, blending well after each addition, to reach the desired consistency, beat until fluffy. Frosting should be smooth and soft, yet hold its shape.
How to Decorate:
I use a gallon sized zip lock bag with the end clipped off to decorate the cupcakes with. Please don’t look closely at my 12 Year old son’s fingernails in this picture!
