Reviews for Berry Surprise Cupcakes
"These were delish!! I've been trying to sort out different Valentine recipes to fix for church kids and although this was a pretty good hit with "my testers" they didn't think it had the pizazz others might. So off we go for more tasting."
"My 4 yr old son enjoyed helping with this recipe. Fun to make and fun to eat for little ones."
"Made them for a family picnic. Were a hit with everyone, especially the kids. I used cream cheese frosting and assorted fruit snacks."
"These are really yummy!! The only thing I did different was to roll up pieces of the fruit-roll-up instead of laying it flat - very, very good, and a huge hit with the kids(and husband)!!! I also used cream cheese frosting cuzz it's my fave!!Thanks for the recipe - I think I'll try the apricot F.R.U.'s next time!!"
