Strawberry Shortcake Cupcakes

Make these Strawberry Shortcake Cupcakes for a delightfully sweet treat!


These Strawberry Shortcake Cupcakes are not only a delicious treat, they're easy to make! So easy, so light and so tasty!

Ingredients
  • White cake mix (know it's not shortcake, but has a light, foamy texture when baked)
  • Whipped cream
  • Carton of fresh strawberries
Directions

Make cupcakes from your white cake mix. While they bake, slice your berries into thin pieces. Reserve the tops for garnishing your cupcake.

Combine your sliced berries (not tops) with about 3 tablespoons of water, a tablespoon of sugar and a teaspoon of vanilla extract.

Once your cupcakes are baked, remove them from the pan to cool.

After they've cooled, slice them in half.Spoon a dollop of whipped cream onto the bottom layers of your cupcakes and add a few strawberry slices with a bit of the syrup on top of the cream. Cover with the top portion of your cupcake.

Finally, add a smaller dollop of whipped cream to the top of your cupcake and place the strawberry top on it for garnish. You can drizzle with some more of the syrup from your berry, water and sugar mixture if you'd like.
