Vanilla Cupcakes with Strawberry Icing

These vanilla cupcakes with strawberry icing are perfectly sweet, dense, and delicious. The original recipe is one of the most popular recipes on my website. I had some extra strawberries that I needed to use and decided to go for it! The icing is so easy to whip together.
