Strawberry Lime Cupcakes

1 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon lime zest
12 fresh strawberries

1 stick butter, softened
1 lb powdered sugar
2 tablespoons lime juice
1 teaspoon vanilla
lime zest for garnish

Preheat oven to 350. Cream butter, sugar, and eggs together until fluffy. Add vanilla. Combine dry ingredients in a bowl. Add half of the dry ingredients, mixing until just combined. Add the milk. Once mixed, add remaining dry ingredients. Stir in lime zest. Pour into cupcake tins and bake for 20-25 mins at 350. Let cool.

Meanwhile, cream butter for frosting, adding sugar 1 cup at a time. Stir in vanilla. Drizzle in lime juice, add more if needed.

Using a sharp knife, cut a cone-shaped hole in the cupcake, leaving about an inch of cake on the bottom. Stuff the strawberry down it, and cover with remaining cake if you can. Frost cupcakes and garnish with lime zest.
