Strawberry and Cream Cupcakes

Soooo it's my birthday today, the big 20.  I now have a grown up job, as of July, and i'm 20. I feel old and i'm not very happy about it (wahhh). As it's my birthday I thought it was only fitting to make some birthday cupcakes so I made this rather wonderful creations, strawberry and cream cupcakes. These combine my two favourite things, strawberries and cake, yummy! If you'd like to try them for yourself the recipe is below and as always let me know how you get on xx
