Pound Cupcakes with Strawberry Buttercream

Pound Cupcakes with Strawberry Buttercream

When I was growing up I was one of the coolest kids I knew.

Not because I was actually cool.  It was because out of everyone I knew we were the only family in the world who had a strawberry patch in our very own backyard .  It’s true; try not to get too jealous.

In all seriousness this strawberry patch was a miraculous answer to the crazy-hot dog days of summer.  The berries that grew didn’t have that perfectly uniform strawberry-ness to them that the ones in the store had.  They were odd, misshapen, sometimes more red than anything I can imagine, and more often than not very small in comparison.  They were magical.
