Spring Fling Cupcakes

Family Favorites

I like to lighten up my recipes in the spring after eating such heavy food over the holidays. My family looks forward to the cool freshness of pineapple and strawberries combined with fluffy Angel Food cake in this recipe. Great for baby and bridal showers, Easter and brunches. Very pretty and colorful on the dessert table.
