This recipe is great with either frozen or fresh raspberries. Both are great, and although the textures are different in the end, they both make a delicious raspberry flavored treat for you to enjoy and share!
Tip: For easier frosting, cool the baked cupcakes in the refrigerator until firm before filling and frosting the cake. A freshly baked cake is quite soft and when you try to spread the frosting, it is possible for it to break. Refrigerate the cake first to prevent this issue.
