Princess Party Cupcakes

This Sunday was filled with tiaras, tulle, glitter and some amazing Strawberry Cupcakes made from this book.  I am usually one to change up the ingredients--swapping out all purpose for white whole wheat flour or adding ground flax seed.  This time, I stayed true to the recipe with the exception of this addition:

Dehydrated strawberries came to mind for giving these cupcakes an extra punch of strawberry.  I used my mortal and pestle to grind them into a fine powder, then added 1/2 cup to the dry ingredients for the batter.  More dehydrated berries (approximately 1/4 cup) joined the chopped strawberries for the meringue buttercream.

Happy fairy princesses gobbled them down, followed by dancing together in the living room.
How do you turn up the flavor in your recipes?
