#SundaySupper Strawberry Shortcake Whipped Cream Cupcakes

May 11, 2014Deanna

Happy Mother’s Day! I got a sort of funny story, I decided to launch a YouTube Channel.  I had plans of making this the first recipe on the channel. I wanted to put it in this post the actual making of these cupcakes. I admit I am still learning this little camera thingy to do the filming with. Well, I got 2 hours of footage, now it’s time to edit it, yeah…. hmmm, did you know you should open a shutter thing on a portable webcam? I did not do that, I got 2 hours of audio, and pitch black, and sometimes a finger because I was adjusting the lens. I guess I better read the manual again.

I had this cute little intro, talking about  how this recipe blog will be turning 1 year in 2 weeks and how this is a Sunday Supper post and it all about Mother’s day and how my mom inspired the recipe, so instead of seeing it in the video that is all black, how about I just type it out for you. It just one of those laugh out loud moments in life

Anyway, yes On May 18th, Seduction in the Kitchen will be one-year-old. Wow! I can’t believe it going to be a year. Truthfully, I started food blogging because I was bored. I was in a cast, I could not leave my apartment, that I was confined to. I had friends helping me and cooking is my stress relief, so I decided to start food blogging to fill the time for the 2 months I was in the cast.

Now it a huge passion of mine. So when I figure out this gizmo to film, I want to take this blog to next level with video tutorials. S,o hopefully soon I will have 15-20 minute recipe videos on the YouTube Channel. You will however have to bear with me on it. I will be chatty Cathy, I will make mistakes, I am still learning it as I go, just like I am with food photos! I hope they will be fun and you get to see my personality.

Seduction in the Kitchen recipe blog would not be possible without the support of its fans. One of my fans is my mom. My mother actually inspired this recipe. My mom can not smell or taste anything from a brain tumor she has. It is not cancerous, but she did lose these senses from it. It been 15 years and trust me it is interesting sometimes. You ask her if something tastes ok, she look at you and say, “texture seems right.” it is all about texture rather than taste with her.

When I first moved to Cleveland, 9 years ago, I was huge into making cakes, I watched one too many of those cake shows, and I decided I wanted to do that. Anyway, my mom asked me to make her this strawberry whipped cream cake she used to get with her father at a bakery in Pittsburgh, I think it was in Squirrel Hill and was called Waldorf’s Bakery. The problem was this place went out business in the 80’s. From everything I could find on this place, there is no recipe for this creation, the only thing could find was people missed the bakery. My dad never had this cake so he could not tell me what tasted like. So they only one who knows what tastes like is my mom who lost her sense of taste and smell, sure this should be interesting.

So I listened to description she told me of what she could remember about this cake. I tried my best, asked her how it was, I got “texture seems right.” We will never know if I cracked the recipe.

Flash forward to this Easter, I was at my parent’s home in Pittsburgh, and I decided to make cupcakes for Easter. I decided on Strawberry ones, I asked my mom what did she think if I did a strawberry cupcake. She suggested instead putting strawberries into the batter, I should put them on top, that is what they did at this Waldorf’s bakery for the cake she treasured as a kid. She said put chunks of strawberry into the whipped cream because again that goes back to the strawberry whipped cream cake she loves.

So I did as she said, and my family truly loved them, they are so moist, that they melted in your mouth. I asked my mom, did I finally crack this childhood recipe? “Texture seems right.”
