Wonderful! I saw this recipe, and thought--when I read about the freeze-dried strawberry powder--"GENIUS!" I made them for a BBQ this weekend, but only got 14 cupcakes. I think of my pan as being a standard-sized pan, and I use a scoop for portioning the batter. In any case, I loved these. I made a second batch of chocolate cupcakes (Extreme Chocolate Cake) to bring along with these. I used an Italian meringue buttercream with fresh strawberry puree for the frosting, which was delicious on both flavors. Oh: I used 1/3 cup of the sugar to help grind the strawberries in the food processor (a trick I use when making almond meal or other nut flours), and used the remaining sugar to cream with the butter.
