Strawberry Fluffy Frosting recipe

Aren’t these pretty? I have a meeting to go to tonight and decided we needed a snack. I had never made strawberry cupcakes until a few weeks ago when I had to make a mermaid cake. I really liked it so I decided right away to make strawberry cupcakes. As they were baking I dug into my files to find this frosting recipe. It is so good and uses fresh strawberries.

    Using an electric mixer or a stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, beat the egg whites on high speed until thick and marshmallow-like, 4 to 7 minutes. Add the lemon and strawberry juices; beat on high until blended. (The frosting may loosen.) Continue beating until the frosting is thick, 2 to 3 more minutes. If the color is too pale, whisk in a drop or two of food coloring.
