{Cupcake Monday} Heart Shaped Strawberry Marshmallow Cream Filled Cupcakes

I originally made these delicious heart shaped strawberry cream filled cupcakes to use in the photos for my Valentine's Day Pink Hearts Printable Party Set.  Eventually, I decided to use  these cupcakes instead.   So, I thought I would share the recipe for the marshmallow cream filling in case you wanted to make your own!

This recipe is not anything fancy and very easy to make....and I didn't measure my ingredients when I made the cream filling - but the measurements shown are a guesstimate. You can always add more or less depending on your taste and amount of cupcakes you're making.  You can also flavor the marshmallow cream with other purees, like blueberry, apricot or raspberry!
