Strawberry Chocolate Chips Cupcake – Bake-Along 2nd Anniversary

May is a month of celebrations, my daughter’s and son’s birthday, Mother’s day and last but not least, Bake-Along anniversary.  Happy 2nd Anniversary to Bake-Along!

I haven’t been baking regularly owing to hectic work schedule, however, I have to set aside some time to bake birthday cakes for both of my teenage children.   Be is turning 15 tomorrow and she mentioned she wanted a strawberry cake on her birthday while Re who will be turning 17 four days after his sister has no special request (boy’s nature).   I was looking for a cupcake recipe to bake for Be to treat her school friends tomorrow, and I’m glad to have found this awesome recipe from Aspiring Baker ‘Enjoy Cupcakes’.

A simple and easy recipe with awesome taste.  Sweetness is just right.

I’m publishing this post for Bake-Along # 44 : Celebration Cupcakes.  This is a blog hop organized by Joyce of Kitchen Flavours, Lena of Frozen Wings and Zoe of Bake for Happy Kids.
