    Help Calling all bakers!

    Advertisements
    So I have an idea in my head but I'm not sure how to actually do it and I can't find a recipe.

    My friends are throwing me a baby shower and as part of their thank you baskets I want to make them some yummy cupcakes.

    My first thought was some really good chocolate cupcakes with a truffle in the middle, cream cheese frosting, and a strawberry on top with chocolate drizzle.

    But I'm thinking that I would like to put strawberry IN the cupcake instead of just on top or in the frosting. I don't know if they make strawberry truffles that I could bake into the cupcakes or not, but that would be ideal. Or even a recipe with pureed strawberries in the mix. Anyone have any suggestions?

    Thanks!
    I'm LeAndra

    Godiva makes Strawberry Truffles. What about dried strawberries? I wonder if they would soften during the baking process.
    Never do anything halfway unless you want to be half happy.

    Is this a dream? If it is, please don't wake me from this high. I'd become comfortably numb

    Not joking but my friend JUST posted this recipe online. It might be what you are looking for! I might even make them.

    I may have to go on a hunt..think they would bake ok?

    Dried strawberries in the mix maybe

    I thought about a frozen strawberry in the middle but I'm not sure it would bake okay.

    I know I can put chocolate in the middle and come out with a really yummy chocolate melty center...just not sure about adding a strawberry to that.

    I know I could cut a hole out of the cupcakes, but I'd rather not if I can bake it in.

    LOL I actually saw this one, but it's a filling not actual strawberry.

    Maybe it's because I'm pregnant but all I can think about is an actual strawberry in the cupcakes

    IMHO, my baking instincts tell me this will not work out very well

    You could put in a piece of strawberry WITH the filling. That might work out?

    Hm, I think this may be a baking experiment!

    I wonder if you pureed the strawberry and 'injected' the middle? That's not really an actual strawberry though. There MUST be a recipe somewhere with an actual strawberry in the middle.

    That sounds yummy...hmm...from everything I've seen though I think I'm going to have to cut a hole out for the strawberry if I want one in there...though I'm still thinking about the truffle idea.

    I know chocolate truffles can be baked into the middle...why not a chocolate strawberry one?
