Strawberry Jelly Cheese Cupcakes

Just love the idea on how Mimy made this jelly cheese in the cupcakes. I followed her make these for my son to bring to his student care for sharing with the rest today :) Just hope the kids will like it.

Here, I used recipe published by the Sunday Times via Mimy Bakery House, you may also check the other recipe that I tried earlier. Both are delicious, however, if you prefer more creamy texture on the cheesecake, you may like this one.
