Strawberry Valentine

The guy at the bottleshop judged me when I walked up to the counter with a bottle of baileys, a bottle of butterscotch liqueur and a bottle of strawberry cowgirl smoothie mix..

Yes, I was in my gym clothes, so I probably looked a little odd, but I didn't need his commentary. Why can't check out people just do their job without trying to be a comedian?!

Little did he know, these bottles of alcoholic, milky goodness are the key ingredients in a variety of delicious icings!

For Valentine's Day, I thought it only appropriate to make pretty pink cupcakes, sprinkled with hearts and love and sunshine and rainbows!

The cakes were vanilla. And while they were light and fluffy, the true hero was the strawberry flavoured frosting.

Here's how -
270g butter, softened
4 1/2 cups icing sugar (hey - no one said these were healthy...)
4 tbsp strawberry milkshake flavoured liqueur

Beat the butter; gradually add icing sugar and strawberry liquid, alternating until all combined.

They were delicious!

And yes, I shared them. With my lovely housemates and Miss Emma who joined us for some V Day celebrations.

Much love.
