Fill a pie with berries and rum and I'm there. It's like a delicious girly cocktail with a crust!
Ooh just think about how extra sweet and juicy the berries get when they warm up a little bit in the fryer! I'm not usually a huge proponent of frying everything I can get my hands on, but a tart, crisp berry in a crispy light layer of fried batter is irresistible!
I like the move to include bits of real strawberries in the frosting on these cupcakes. I bet it's light and fluffy and not too sweet and has just the right little tart edge. If I drool on my keyboard one more time it's gonna break again.
