Day 271 – Strawberry Shortcake Cupcakes

28 Apr

Some weeks just need a little sweetness to get ya started, right?  This week I chose a classic combo from one of my favorite blogs to get the week started.  Strawberry Shortcake Cupcakes (recipe below from Sally’s Baking Addiction).  And, in case you’re not following me on Instagram, I announced yesterday that my hubby and I are working on a new kind of cupcake…


…one that will finish baking somewhere around November 8th 🙂

Now, onto today’s happy cupcakes!

Vanilla-Cupcake     Mini-Vanilla-Cupcake

The cupcakes are dense, chewy and a little sticky. They have a somewhat sweet vanilla flavor. Nothing over-stated. Just light and simple.

The filling is thick and sticky. A little like a strawberry jelly in taste and feel.


The frosting is whipped and fluffy. It has a nice, sweet whipped cream taste with just a hint of the strawberry flavor.

Together this is a delightful cupcake version of Strawberry Shortcake. Vanilla. Strawberry. With a twist on classic whipped cream topping. Simple and sweet.
