Here is what I use for a strawberry filling. Although my recipe uses frozen strawberries you can use fresh strawberries. Note that the strawberries are in syrup so if you use fresh strawberries I would add some sugar to them and let them permiate for a few hours. Then use the juices and all.

1 pkg (16 ounces/1 lb) of frozen sliced strawberries in syrup, thawed
1 cup heavy cream
2 tablespoons of cornstarch.

Of course double the recipe if needed. This filling is awesome.

I make a whipped icing, chop up strawberries, mix the two in a bowl and let it set in the fridge. Makes a great filling!

sweetsuzie,
Did you bake that strawberry in the cupcake or put it in as a filling after it was cooked.

I put it in after. Baked a simple vanilla cupcake recipe (that I fancied up with lime zest and juice). While they baked, I hulled my strawberries and gave them a light dusting of sugar and put in fridge (u could totally skip the sugar but, i can never resist giving my strawberries a little sweet kiss). Then, once mostly cooled, I took a paring knife and, took a cone shape out of the cupcakes and, filled with a strawberry. Then, I iced with a lime buttercream.

i make my strawberry filling by cooking 1 cup water to1/2 cup sugar and 2.5 tblsp cornstarch cooking until thick, add pckg straberry jello, add in sliced strawberries, if i am filling cupakes i make sure they are diced very small, let cool, it makes a thick filling that holds up well, and is oh so good, especially with butter cake

Sorry took so long to respond back, just got back on the computer. I actually got the whipped icing recipe from here on CC....

1- 8 oz package cream cheese, softened
1/2 c. powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. almond extract
2 cups heavy whipping cream

Combine the cream cheese, sugar, vanilla extract and almond extract. Fit your mixer with the whisk attachment and mix on medium speed until smooth. While the mixture is still whipping, slowly pour in the heavy whipping cream. Stop and scrap the bottom of the bowl a couple of times while you continue whipping until the cream can hold a stiff peak. Yields 5 cups.

Made it for the first time (omitted the almond extract and added lime juice) and it was sooo delish!

Is the amount of 10x sugar actually only 1/2 cup?
