I want to start by saying that I don't like strawberries or buttercream frosting. But my kids asked for vanilla cupcakes with strawberry frosting so I gave this a try. The only change I made to the recipe was to strain the puree, as suggested in other reviews. And WOW. I mean, WOW. This is a fabulous frosting. Something about it is just marvelous. It's not overly sweet (my strawberries were a bit tart, and I only added powdered sugar until I had a nice, firm frosting) and it has the perfect fresh berry taste. I let it sit overnight and it really gets fabulous on day two. Apparently, my aversion to strawberries is a texture issue, because I absolutely could not keep my spoon out of the bowl once this was made. It paired perfectly with a light, fluffy vanilla cupcake and wasn't too sugar charged for the kids. Amazing. I'm definitely making this again.
