Lime Cupcakes with Strawberry Frosting

So, few things:
1. Strawberries are not in season and are $5 for a box that is squishy, So I used little Strawberry Shaped Marshmallows for the Topping, but you don't have to have anything on top at all.
2. My strawberry frosting would not stiffen because
             a. my electric mixer broke
             b. I had to do everything by hand, which took forever, and apparently was not enough force for it
so I kept adding more and more powdered sugar until I was out and then by the end, still was not stiff and was incredibly and overly sweet! So I just used my backup supply of store bought frosting. If you have an electric mixer, I'm sure you'll be much better off with this frosting!

So what you need:
2 3/4 cups All Purpose Flour
3 tsp Baking Powder
1/3 tsp Salt
1 cup Shortening
1 2/3 cup Granulated Sugar
5 Egg Whites
3 tbsp Lime Juice (Fresh)

For the Frosting:
1 pkg Philadelphia Cream Cheese, softened
1/2 cup Butter, softened
3 1/2 cups Powdered Sugar
1/2 cup minced Strawberries, well drained
Small Strawberries, for topping

What you need to do:
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Place cupcake liners into each cup of a 24 cup muffin pan.

For the Frosting:
