Celebrate National Strawberry Month with These Delicious Strawberry Shortcake Cupcakes
It is time to celebrate strawberries! Yep, May is the official “National Strawberry” month. When I think of these little beauties, I think of delicious desserts bursting full of summer fresh flavors. My favorite strawberry delight has to be strawberry shortcake. I love this decadent dessert, so why not put a modern twist on this classic!
I created a cupcake, made with a no-fuss batter. This is not your typical cake that is light, airy and fluffy. This is a dense buttery cake, similar to traditional shortcake. The surprise is a fresh whole strawberry that is baked inside to add that unexpected pop of flavor! To add the finishing touch, I created a double strawberry frosting made with freeze dried berries and Challenge Dairy’s Strawberry Cream Cheese Spread.
So come on celebrate the wondrous beautiful strawberry this month. You will love these cupcakes especially with this decadent creamy frosting. Hurray for strawberries!
