    Well let me start by saying that this is one of my favorite cupcakes at Sprinkles. This recipe tastes exactly like theirs. I'm not sure why some of the negative comments but in my opinion it's great !!!!! I usually don't make any comments but I thought this one deserve it. I only did three things differently, I doubled the baking powder, just to make sure they rise, I doubled the strawberries, based on other comments that it did not have a strawberry flavor and made my own buttercream icing and added the strawberry purée and came across that it was to runny but it was a easy fix just added more confectioners sugar until the consistency was a bit more thicker. The end result was exactly the same Sprinkle's strawberry cupcake.. I was very impressed. I will be making this again and again. And a lot cheaper than going and getting one cupcake for 5 dollars .....

      I cut back to 1/2 c sugar and used nestles strawberry quick in the milk to get a great strawberry flavor

    Well.... These do taste just like sprinkles cupcakes, but that's the problem. The cupcakes are very good but they don't taste like strawberry. I doubled the strawberry (knowing sprinkles lacks the taste) and it helped nothing. The texture is great. The cupcake is great. It just doesn't taste like a strawberry cupcake 🤷🏿‍♀️

    I love sprinkles cupcakes and decided to make the recipe for a birthday. First the cupcakes did not taste like the sprinkles cupcakes i normally buy, the cupcake was dense and was lacking strawberry flavor. If you want to make strawberry cupcakes i suggest trying a different recipe. It's not possible this recipe is the exact recipe from sprinkles.

    I loved this recipe, as did everyone at my party. I doubled the recipe and made it in a half sheet pan. I made them into mini cakes by cutting small circles and stacking two with frosting in between and on top. The cake was super moist and had a nice, subtle strawberry flavor. For the frosting, I actually added an extra stick of butter and it was very smooth with great strawberry flavor. I love how the cake and frosting had a subtle pink hue. I got rave reviews and will definitely make it again!

    The sprinkle's strawberry cupcakes didn't have much of a strawberry taste in them.Also Sprinkles cupcakes are heavy.Cupcakes should be light.

    ZERO strawberry flavor comes through with these. They taste like a plain Jane vanilla cupcake. Disappointed.

    These may be the best cupcakes I have ever made! I doubled the recipe but otherwise followed the directions exactly. (The video has some good tips, too.) The frosting is especially delicious, and the recipe makes a lot- plenty to top all the cupcakes. I will definitely make these again!

    A lot of the reviews said this cupcake was terrible. I however found them quiet tasty. If I made these again I would add another tsp. of PP because they didn't rise as much as they said they would. I would also add a couple more Tbs. of puree. All in all a great treat tho.
