Orange Glazed Strawberry Cupcakes

I made these cupcakes quite awhile ago.  I haven’t made them since.  I should make them again.  
Want to know how to make them?
You need:
1 2/3 cups flour
1 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 stick unsalted butter, softened
2/3 cup sugar
1 large whole egg plus 1 large egg white
8 tablespoons orange juice (1/2 cup)
1/2 cup finely chopped strawberries
1 cup powdered sugar
To make cupcakes:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a 12 cup muffin pan with liners. In a bowl sift flour, baking powder, and salt.
Cream butter and sugar with a mixer on high speed until light and fluffy. Beat in whole egg and egg white until well combined. With mixer on low beat in half of flour mixture. Beat in 6 tablespoons of orange juice then add remaining flour until combined scraping sides of bowl as needed.  Gently fold in strawberries.
Spoon batter into prepared muffin pan filling each until almost full. Bake until a toothpick comes out clean. About 20-22 minutes. Let cool in pan on wire rack for 5 minutes.
Make glaze:
In a small bowl stir powdered sugar and remaining 2 tablespoons orange juice. If glaze is too thick add 1 teaspoon at a time. Glaze should be thick enough to spread but not drip.
Remove cupcakes from pan. Top evenly with glaze. Let cool on wire rack. Garnish with a strawberry half.
