Martha Stewart's Cupcake Countdown

Strawberry Cupcakes

We have 251 unread messages in our inbox. 200 of them are from Martha Stewart. Ok, maybe not from Martha Stewart herself, but from Martha's Cookie of the Day. Well, of late, Martha's Cookies of the Day have turned to Cupcakes of the Day and yesterday's recipe was for Sprinkles' Strawberry Cupcakes. Ok, Martha, you now have my full attention...

Oddly enough, a year ago exactly I blogged up my experience at the Scottsdale Sprinkles. After tasting some 9 different cupcakes--everything from Dark Chocolate to Red Velvet to Lemon Coconut and Chai Latte--the Strawberry Cupcake was the hands down winner. Pure strawberry cake with sweet strawberry icing this cupcake was light, moist and beyond delicious. You can get the recipe on Martha's website here. As evidenced by the numerous unread emails, we don't always get around to all the recipes we get via email, but this is one that's going to the top of the must list.

In the meantime, Martha's counting down favorite cupcakes in anticipation of the June 2nd release of her new book: Martha Stewart's Cupcakes: 175 Inspired Ideas for Everyone's Favorite Treat. Check out the Cookie of the Day homepage for the latest daily cupcake. Happy baking (and eating!).
