Strawberry and White Chocolate Baby Shower Cupcakes

As promised I am back to baking and sharing my recipes with you. Although I have to admit this is from January and I just haven’t got around to putting it up, anyway, it is here now. The story, one of my closest friends here in Berlin is due to give birth, well, any day now so I threw her a little surprise baby shower, which amazingly was kept secret until the day! I could not of possible had a big group of girls, including a pregnant lady over without making cupcakes, my inspirations were her likes and the fact she is having a girl, therefore what do you get? Strawberry and White Chocolate Baby Shower Cupcakes! Here is the recipe:
