Strawberry Daiquiri Cupcakes

I wanted to try out a strawberry cake recipe with a filling. I'll be revisiting the actual 'cupcake' when I uncover my grandmother's strawberry cake recipe b/c I ended up just trying the filling. But, here are a few fun ideas I tried out for cupcake presentation using the filling I made, and the boxed cake mix and canned icing.
The presentation is sort of in memory of May's Margarita Cupcake....this is a summer presentation idea I played around with...because I'm avoiding housework/exercise/curriculum-ish related everything.
Strawberry Daquiri Cupcake

I layered cupcake/filling/cupcake/filling/cupcake/icing/garnish
...and a...
Strawberry Shake Cupcake

I used the same layering concept, and added a strawberry candy stick for the 'straw.'
The filling recipe is sweet...if you like strawberries, it holds the flavor pretty accurately in a gel form, it's just fun to add another dimintion to basic cake and icing.
Filling Ingredients/Instructions
2 c. strawberries-hulled, and crushed

Add 1/2 c sugar to strawberries once they are crushed, and set aside.
Add 1 T of unflavored gelatin to 2 T of cold water. Add 3 T of boiling water to this mix, and stir together until gelatin dissolves.
Add gelatin mix to strawberries, and let it cool until it is the consistancy of a thick syrup.
Whip 1/2 c of whipping cream until stiff. Fold into strawberry mixture.
Chill for about 2 hours (it should be set and look like this...)

Fill a cupcake...or if you are like me, play around.
