Irresistible Strawberry Gluten-free Vanilla Cupcake

Winter @ Australia. It means that now is strawberry season. Thinking to bake into new gluten-free cupcakes with fresh strawberry puree, it must be wonderful blending together. Finished it with small amount of fresh custard, vibrant colour of the whole package made it looks stunning!

Today, my new recipe of this irresistible Strawberry Gluten-free Vanilla Cupcake can be made into 2 different types of finishing. One type to put the fresh strawberry puree on top of the vanilla cupcakes before baking, the outcome looks like the first picture below.

The strawberry puree colour became darker after baked

The other type is putting fresh strawberry puree after the gluten-free vanilla cupcakes baked and cooled down. Decorate it with fresh custard. Alternatively, you can remove the cupcake liner and change it to upside down. Then, splash some puree on top depends on your own creativity.
