  4. Pour the wet mixture into the dry mixture and stir until a smooth batter forms.
  5. Gently fold in the finely chopped fresh strawberries into the batter.
  6. Divide the batter evenly among the cupcake liners, filling each about two-thirds full.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a cupcake comes out clean.
  8. Remove the cupcakes from the oven and allow them to cool completely before frosting.
For the Vanilla Frosting:
  1. In a mixing bowl, beat the softened unsalted butter until it’s creamy and smooth.
  2. Gradually add the powdered erythritol and vanilla extract, continuing to beat until well combined.
  3. Add heavy cream, one tablespoon at a time, and continue to beat until the frosting reaches your desired consistency. You can adjust the amount of cream to make it thicker or thinner.
Frosting the Cupcakes:
  1. Once the cupcakes are completely cooled, frost them with the vanilla frosting. You can use a piping bag for a decorative touch or simply spread the frosting with a spatula.
