Moist and delicious strawberry basil cupcakes frosted with basil buttercream. Yep, you read that right, basil buttercream! It’s one of the most unique buttercream flavors; very refreshing and delicious and perfect for these berry strawberry cupcakes! If you want to serve a dessert that’s bound to have your guests asking for the recipe, make these sweet treats!
If you’ve never tried basil buttercream, I do hope you give it a try! It’s one of those unique flavors that leaves you guessing just what it is! And the color is certainly eye-catching! I love strawberry basil jam and thought, why not combine these flavors for a cake recipe?! The strawberry cupcake base is simple and easy to make, loaded with tons of fresh diced strawberries. You can use this recipe for full-sized cupcakes (this recipe makes 24), mini cupcakes (makes 48), or use this recipe to make an 8-inch round cake with 2 to 3 layers.
These cupcakes are a truly tempting with their show-stopping color and aroma!
