Confession time once again here for me.
See here is the thing I am not a huge cupcakes person. I know I may be a bit strange for confessing that. But still as much as I love making them I usually will defer to others to mostly consume them. See unlike my admitted cookie obsession, I could truly take or leave most cupcakes.
Don’t get me wrong, I still have a massive sweet tooth. So there are a few cupcakes which I do happen readily enjoy myself when I make and serve here.

One such cupcake treat that I can’t get enough of is Strawberry Cheesecake Cupcakes. See between the chocolate cupcake cake base, the cheesecake frosting and the strawberry on top, I am sold! I mean cheesecake is a most definite weakness here. Plus, strawberries are seriously one of my favorite fruits. I can literally feats on strawberries for a snack all on their own.
I even make my cupcakes more chocolatey by adding cocoa powder to my cupcake batter. And my frosting is a slice of cheesecake heaven, but still fluffy and airy enough, too by using just the right amount of powdered sugar.
So these cupcakes are sinful, but delightful.
