Sprinkles' Strawberry Cupcake

After digging through, I found a recipe on Sprinkles' Strawberry Cupcake. For those of you not familiar with Sprinkles', it is the first cupcake only store that was opened in LA. This chain is so popular that you would see people lining up just to buy cupcakes. One of their cupcake is $3.25 but if buy by the dozen, it's $3/each. :)

To be honest, I've never tried their cupcake before. I've heard a lot about it from friends, but I just didn't have a chance to try it when I was still in California. From what I heard, Sprinkles' is also opening a branch here in Houston. :)

This is my first time icing a cupcake to make it sweet and pretty. This is actually a try-run for my friend's bridal shower cakes. I'm still not sure on what to bake for her. So many ideas are floating through my head. :) I'll slowly trim it down during the next couple of weeks. :)

As for this cupcake, it's strawberry cupcake with strawberry icing. The frosting is really very sweet. When I told Nana about this, she mentioned that Sprinkles' frosting are indeed very sweet. I think the next time I make this, I'll use Swiss meringue strawberry buttercream instead. It should be fluffier and less sweet. :)

One recipe makes 12 cupcakes and 10 mini cupcakes for me. Now I need to figure out how to finish these. :p Any helpers interested?
