Strawberry Swirl Cupcakes

My mother was town all weekend. I look forward to these visits. I’m a cliche hermit-lone wolf-antisocial book loving fiber nerd but I get excited as a four year old at Christmas to see my family. I like living where I do but country’s in my blood.

Because I was seeing my mom all weekend, I didn’t get a chance to bake or make anything new for Sweet Month-but Peeps, people, Peeps and Pinterest, I have ideas for next month and April.

Here’s a recipe from the archives. This cake will probably bake up denser than what you’re used to in a cupcake but I know for a fact that 2 men at all 12 cupcakes in the space of 2 hours. I’m not going to argue with a result like that. They’ll eventually get a nice, new pretty photo now that we have the Nikon-but again, my mom’s more important that food photography.
