Start your summer off with this delicious easy to make Vanilla Cupcakes with homemade Strawberry Cream Cheese Frosting. This was definitely a hit in my home, my kids loved both versions of the frosting and are still raving about them. I love how light these cupcakes are but yet satisfying, although I’ve never been able to just eat one I’m sure you would enjoy tasting both versions as I did.

Here are the ingredients you will need.

These look so good but I don't eat anything with cream cheese. My family would so love me to make these so maybe I will make these for them. Thanks for sharing. The strawberries look delicious.
