A flavorful blend of strawberry, banana, pineapple and orange all rolled into a cupcake. Yum!!
I liked the fruity blend for the Mai Tai cupcakes, but I liked these even better. Smoothies are delicious, and the different flavors being mixed together just hits all of your taste buds. The icing is also a combination of pineapple, orange and strawberry, and with a little bit of cream cheese icing thrown in there as well.
