Strawberry Cupcakes

The second dessert I brought for my dad's birthday, was strawberry-jam-filled-cupcakes - was in the mood for strawberries!!!

I had some leftover icing from the Lemonade Cupcakes I had just made - so decided to use the leftover for these jam-filled cupcakes!!  I also had some tangy slices of candy that I added on top and some cute little umbrellas I added for fun!!
