When I think of Valentine's day, all I have in mind is all things pink or red! This is why these pink cupcakes are what I plan to make this coming Valentine's day!
These Valentine's day cupcakes start off with a simple vanilla bean cupcake recipe. These cupcakes are soft and light. In each bite, you'll have a taste of the vanilla. If you'll ask me if you can use vanilla extract, I'll say no because vanilla bean paste has a stronger flavor than the liquid. Even a small amount of the paste goes a long way! I highly suggest using vanilla bean paste for this recipe. Then, each cupcake is filled with strawberry preserves and topped with a sweet strawberry buttercream frosting. You can either garnish them with pink sprinkles or a strawberry!
Since this recipe uses strawberry, it can easily be replaced with another kind of berry fruit. You can choose your favorite berry fruit and follow the same recipe!
