Nutritional values

The strawberry cupcakes shine with their low fat content, high vitamin and mineral levels and are particularly convincing due to the fantastically fluffy dough and the "berry" fruit aroma.

You can bake and freeze the cupcakes well in stock. Then prepare the topping after defrosting and just before serving and pour it on top.
