Strawberry White Chocolate Ganache Cupcake

My coworkers said that I've really outdone myself this time.

Start with a basic vanilla cupcake base, but throw in diced strawberries. I used the same recipe from a different strawberry cupcake that I made, except I halved the recipe, doubled the strawberries, and omitted the champagne.

Prep strawberry buttercream: one stick softened butter, 1 tsp vanilla, 1 tsp strawberry gelatin powder, 2 diced strawberries, 2 cups powdered sugar, and 1 Tbsp milk. Beat together until light and fluffy.

Prep white chocolate ganache: heat 1/4 cup heavy cream and stir in 1 cup white chocolate chips.

Dip cakes in ganache...

...and then swirl on some buttercream. So incredibly decadent. I ran out of frosting for the last couple of cupcakes so those were ganache only, sprinkled with white pearl sugar, but they were no less delicious.
