Sunday was my Dad’s birthday and to celebrate I made these Pineapple Cupcakes with Strawberry Mousse Frosting. They were so moist and flavorful and the mousse frosting was the perfect addition.
My family and I are not big frosting/icing fans so using this mousse as the frosting was the perfect solution. I don’t know why I never thought of it before. There’s actually a store in town that makes a whipped-cream-type frosting that I would love to replicate. It’s light, fluffy and is the perfect sweetness. It’s goes perfect with a cake that’s filled with a something sweet.
This cupcake recipe was easy to prepare…..you even start with a boxed cake mix! By adding the crushed pineapple and yogurt to the mix gave it the extra moistness that I like in a cupcake. And even though a buttercream frosting is delicious I don’t want to be eating it all the time. This Strawberry Mousse was the perfect alternative. My whole family agreed too!
I hope you enjoyed your cupcakes Dad! Happy Birthday!
