sugared strawberries

Happy October all! As you all may know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. What better way to celebrate such an amazing cause than with pink cupcakes! Last year I baked my own creation of strawberry berry goodness cupcakes in the local Memphis area and all proceeds were donated to the Susan B. Komen Foundation, the worlds largest network of breast cancer survivors & activists, fighting to save lives. The only thing better than baking cupcakes is baking cupcakes with a cause.

This is one of my favorite strawberry cupcake recipes. Super moist & amazingly delicious.

1/8 teaspoon salt
