Strawberry cupcakes

These strawberry cupcakes were inspired by a bakery in my hometown. They made these fresh strawberry cupcakes with whipped cream that really tasted amazing. 

Using fresh strawberries instead of a strawberry gel really made these strawberry cupcakes stand out. You had a strawberry shortcake but as a cupcake recipe instead.

Whipped cream frosting

Instead of doing a traditional buttercream frosting, I made a whipped cream frosting for these strawberry cupcakes. A whipped cream frosting is what the bakery used on their cupcakes, but also making a homemade whipped cream frosting has a lighter taste to it.

A strawberry flavor cupcake tends to have a light flavor taste. So I needed a lighter tasting frosting that would compliment the strawberries. A whipped cream frosting is the perfect choice for this cupcake recipe.
