My Life of Travels and Adventures: Strawberry Shortcake Cupcakes

Strawberry Shortcake Cupcakes

12 September 2013

I made these Strawberry Shortcake Cupcakes for a family reunion/party last month.  They were a hit and looked great.  Andplusalso they had a strawberry surprise inside!


For the Cupcakes:
3 cups flour
2 cups sugar
3 tsp baking powder
6 eggs
2 cups butter
1/2 cup milk
3 tsp vanilla
36 strawberries

For the Frosting:
16 oz cream cheese
1 cup sugar
4 tsp vanilla
4 cups heavy cream
12 strawberries

1. Preheat oven to 350F
2. Line cupcake tins with 36 cupcake papers
3. Combine eggs, milk, butter and vanilla.
4. Slowly add the baking powder, flour and sugar
5. Mix until well blended.
6. Fill the cupcakes papers half full. (Do not fill more).
7. Bake for 20 minutes.
8. Let cool completely.
9. Once the cupcakes have cooled, scoop out the middle.

10.  Insert a strawberry with the top cut off.  (I used frozen strawberries!)

11.  Mix the cream cheese, sugar, vanilla and heavy cream until well blended.
12.  Cover each cupcake with frosting.

13.  Top with the slices of the 12 remaining strawberries.

Store in the refrigerator.

  15. Strawberry shortcake is one of my family's favorites so I will definitely be trying these out. Thanks!

  16. I never comment on food but these look so good! My son who is 18 months only likes strawberry flavored food right now so maybe I should make them for him! Then he would never eat anything else ever again I'm afraid!

  17. Oh my, those look amazing. I love that you used frozen strawberries, I am guessing it is easier to use them, or can I use fresh just as well?
    Thanks for sharing on Tutorial Thursdays Linky Party, your recipe will be one of the features tomorrow.
