Strawberry Mint Cupcake Recipe
These cupcakes are refreshing and sweet. They are very beautiful when cut open to reveal the red strawberries peaking out through the white cake. These cupcakes have the perfect mix of mint and strawberry. If you don't want too much mint flavor, I suggest putting a thin slice of strawberry and a mint leaf on the top of each cupcake.
This recipe makes twelve cupcakes and takes an average of thirty minutes to bake. They are very delicious and are easy-to-make. Kids can make them as well as adults that don't have too much baking experience. Enjoy!
