I found a recipe for chocolate covered strawberry cupcakes from the site The Girl Who Ate Everything. If you haven't checked out her site yet you definitely should. I mean 'wow' she is amazing!
I think this is a great idea for anyone on a budget. They are cheap to make and look really impressive. Mine don't look as good as the originals but I thought they turned out pretty good. All you would have to do to spruce this up is go buy a plate at the DI or dollar store and arrange a few cupcakes on it. Then wrap it all up with cellophane and tie it with a cute ribbon.
