Preparation

Step 1

1)Strawberry Cupcakes:
Position a rack in the middle of the oven and preheat to 350 degrees. Line a standard 12-cup muffin pan with paper foil or liners. In a small bowl, stir together the jam and strawberries. In a bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt. In another bowl, using an electric mixer on medium-high speed, beat the sugar and butter together until light and fluffy, 2-3 minutes. Add the egg whites, vanilla, and red food coloring and beat until combined. Add the flour mixture in 3 additions, alternating with the milk in 2 additions, beating on low speed until just combined; scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed. Fold in the strawberry mixture until just combined. Divide the batter evenly among the prepared muffin cups, filling each about 3/4 full. Bake until lightly golden and a toothpick inserted in the center of a cupcake comes out clean, about 20-25 minutes. Let the cupcakes cool in the pan on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Transfer the cupcakes to the wire rack and let cool completely, about 1 hour.

2)Vanilla Cupcakes :
Position a rack in the middle of the oven and preheat to 350 degrees. Line a standard 12-cup muffin pan with paper foil or liners. In a small bowl, stir together the jam and strawberries. In a bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt. In another bowl, using an electric mixer on medium-high speed, beat the sugar and butter together until light and fluffy, 2-3 minutes. Add the egg and egg white one at a time, beating until light and fluffy. Then add vanilla and beat until combined. Add the flour mixture in 3 additions; alternating with the milk in 2 additions, beating on low speed until combined; scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed. Beat on medium-high speed just until no traces of flour remain, about 30 seconds, do not overbeat. Divide the batter evenly among the prepared muffin cups, filling each about 3/4 full. Bake until lightly golden and a toothpick inserted in the center of a cupcake comes out clean, about 18-20 minutes (for mini cupckaes do about 10 minutes or so). Let the cupcakes cool in the pan on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Transfer the cupcakes to the wire rack and let cool completely, about 1 hour.

3)Vanilla Buttercream :

Step 4

Bouquets:
There's a lot you can do with these bouquets. you can to do two-tone roses. There are two ways to do that. The first way is more subtle. You take some of your icing and in a separate bowl add more food coloring to make it darker than your base icing. Take a frosting spatula and line the inside of your piping back vertically with about 3-4 lines straight up the inside of the bag. Then you fill the bag with your base icing and frost! The second way is more drastic. Take a decorating brush that has been dipped directly in the food coloring and create the same striping effect as the first and proceed to fill your bag with your base icing and frost.
To frost a rose you need a wilton 2d tip. Its very easy. All you do is start in the middle instead of the outside and in a clockwise direction you circle your way outto the edge of the cupcake. Simple and beautiful!
