I liked these cupcakes but did not follow the recipe to a tee. First I did nto take the time to make a "puree" and strain the thawed berries. I just thawed them and mashed them with a fork and added the berried to the batter and frosting. Beware if you do this for some reason they cupcaked are more blue purple than pink but I didn't care they taste good. This made for about 4-5 extra cupcakes. I did not used all the frosting either. All in all a pretty good cupcake.
