Strawberry Kiwi Cupcakes

26 Aug

Mariya and I were watching Cupcakes Wars and we started tossing out our ideas for cupcakes.  We plan on 3 different type cupcakes for her wedding.  One being red velvet with the other choices undecided.  Anyways she came up with the idea of strawberry kiwi cupcakes and I added the strawberry whipped cream.  So the next day I was googling for strawberry kiwi cupcakes.  I wasn’t thrilled with what I found so I searched instead for strawberry cupcakes and found a recipe I liked and then we added the kiwi.  It turned out to be a big hit.  We have already had a few votes to include this flavor for the wedding.  Mariya was really proud of these cupcakes.  She did a great job in baking and decorating them herself.  Good job kid!
