Strawberry Muffins

I love strawberries. Love love love. With a capital L. The color, the flavor, the look of them. Can't get enough. But of course, when I get strawberries, I can't stop myself. I need to make me some strawberry roses.

I used to work at a bubble tea shop where I had to make crepes, and I would decorate them with strawberries shaped as roses, and load on the whipped cream and the chocolate syrup. Needless to say, those who were on a diet didn`t approve of these, but they ate them none the less. Something about these roses makes everything all that much more inviting.

 Weirdly I wasn`t all that wild about this muffins, but everyone else LOVED them. They were gone by the early evening. And it wasn`t like I made only 6 or something, I made quite a bit (since I`m always making somewhat small muffins. I like small things :D)

I just love strawberries so I go a little carried away and bought 3 packs of them, and I don`t know what to do with all of them! I guess I`m going to be baking again soon.

  1. I am a strawberry addict also, love them any way I can get them.

  2. Cathleen, I've never had strawberries until I moved to the US. We didnt' really have them in the Philippines, unless they're from Baguio and they never even reached my hometown. I love strawberries too... I can't wait for the Farmer's Market to open here because all the ones I bought from the grocery store have been disappointing thus far. Love these muffins!

  3. Hi Cathleen! What an adorable idea! I bet your customers loved this adorable touch :)
