This keep the low-fat factor fairly high. The frosting is made from vanilla extract, sugar, water and unsalted butter. Once the cupcakes are baked and iced, the fun begins – the mini-marshmallows and other candies that go on top aren’t exactly low in fat, but they sure taste great and make these treats look adorable!

The classic red velvet cupcake contains just a hint of unsweetened cocoa powder, as well as buttermilk, white vinegar and vanilla extract. Once you have those in the batter, the cupcakes can be tinted any color – including the classic red, which is where the cupcakes get their name.

Sometimes the simple things are the best. These chocolate cupcakes are made out of 10 ingredients, most of which many bakers have laying around in their homes.

The strawberry is simply placed on top of the baked, cooled and frosted treats – not placed within them in way. The results are simple, classic, and tasty.
