Day 1 - Strawberry Brownie Cupcakes!

Day One of the 30 Day Creativity Challenge!
Strawberry Brownie Cupcakes

So I love making cupcakes, but don't actually love eating them that much. Brownies on the other hand I could eat all day!! So as you can imagine I've been wanting to try out one of the brownie cupcake recipes I've found on pinterest. But why stop there? Why not add strawberries into the mix and make the best rainy-day-stuck-in-the-house-feeling-sorry-for-myself treat ever! :) 

Unfortunately the 30 day challenge idea only came to me mid bake and my good camera's battery was dead so the first few pics were taken on my phone. Tomorrow will be better, promise!! 

So I tried this great brownie cupcake recipe: (very tasty!)

Next I cut out a little piece from each cupcake, just big enough to pop a strawberry in. 

Then I made some chocolate icing. I kinda estimated the measurements but roughly:
 1/2 stick of melted butter
1 1/2 cups of icing sugar
1/3 cup of cocoa powder
1/4 cup of milk (add as you need it)
1/2 tsp of vanilla essence

Ice up the cupcakes:

And, once the icing has set, serve them on plate cut in half. Beautiful! And pretty tasty too!
