  • Kim: Just curious, I was thinking of trying to do this heart on the top of a cupcake for a wedding. Did you have any problem with the juice from the berry leaching and making the frosting runny? I was hoping to frost the cakes around 2-3pm for a 4pm wedding so they would be sitting about 3 hours before they get eaten. May 17, 2013 at 1:43pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: Yes the strawberries will begin to break down if they rest on the frosting that long, I’d cut and add them just before serving. May 17, 2013 at 3:43pm Reply
