Strawberry Mousse Filling (adapted from The Smart Cookie Cook)
 
Ingredients
  • 2 cups of strawberries
  • 2 cups chilled heavy cream
  • 2 cups of confectioner's sugar (*see my note at the bottom)
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • A pinch of salt
Instructions
  1. Wash and cut the strawberries into small pieces.
  2. Puree strawberries in a food processor or blender.
  3. Add strawberry puree, cream, sugar, vanilla, and salt to a bowl and use a hand mixer to mix until stiff peaks form.
Notes
* The original recipe calls for 1 cup of confectioner's sugar, but I kept adding sugar until the mousse could stand on a spoon held upside down. I wanted it to be fairly thick before putting in the cupcakes.
