Strawberry Cakes

Strawberries work so well in cupcakes, they make a delicious sponge sweeter and give it a slight moistness, and they are so easy to make. You can swap out strawberries for any berry instead if you want too, blueberries are a great alternative. Great for the kids and they are gluten and dairy free.
