How to Make Strawberry Shortcake Cupcake Recipe

Set the oven to 350 degrees and use cupcake liners to line a cupcake pan.

Add the butter and sugars into a standing mixer and beat until light and fluffy.

One at a time, add in the eggs and beat to combine.

Add in the vanilla and combine again.

Add the flour and baking soda into a large bowl and whisk to combine.

Combine the dry ingredients and milk into the batter by slowly switching between the two until smooth and combined.

Fill up the cupcake liners about 3/4 of the way full.

Place in the oven and bake for 21 minutes or until it’s a golden brown.

Take out and set aside to cool thoroughly.

Whipped Cream

Add the whipping cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla into the bowl of a standing mixer and beat to combine until stiff peaks form.

Put the whipped cream into a bag for piping.

Building the cupcake directions

Add about 1/2 cup of strawberries onto a plate and chop into tiny pieces.

Take the cupcakes out of the liners and slice the tops of each of them off. You can throw away the tops or eat them.

Pip a ring of the whipped topping on the top of the cupcakes.

Can These Be Made with Frozen Strawberries?

This recipe can be made with frozen strawberries. However, I do recommend using fresh strawberries for the recipe for the best-enhanced flavor. Using fresh ingredients is always the best option for the best results.

What is the Best Frosting for Shortcake Cupcakes?

The best frosting or cream for this recipe is made in the recipe already. This whipped topping is a very simple and easy cream to make with only heavy cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla. This will be the best frosting type cream for this recipe.
