Old fashion cupcakes with strawberry frosting

Good old fashioned cake with strawberry whipped frosting. The cake part is simple, and bakes up just like a grandma type cake. Very snackish. Cutting up a few strawberries and cooking them in a few tablespoons of water gave the frosting a nice hint of strawberry flavor with a classic pink color.  I finessed the slices of strawberry's into heart shapes (valentines day is just around the corner).
