1. Strawberry banana is my favorite yogurt flavor and I wanted a cupcake that went with Greek yogurt frosting.
The strawberry banana cupcakes were my kind of cupcake – moist, dense, and not overly sweet. My only disappointment with them was that they tasted too much like banana cake. While you could taste the strawberry, the flavor wasn’t as prominent as I would have liked. Next time, I might cut the banana in half and add even more berries.

The Cupcake Liners
When I first began cupcake blogging, I used only plain white cupcake liners, but I quickly developed a sizable liner collection. I get super excited whenever I see a style I haven’t seen before. My friend Christina bought me the liners shown above as a surprise gift. Despite my lot of liners, I had never seen this pattern! They are so cute and appropriately came in strawberry and banana colors! Thanks, Christina! Sorry you didn’t get to eat any of the cupcakes baked in them. Luckily, I have some liners left, so you can try one next time.
