You know when you mess up something but in the end it actually turns out something delicious in another way? That’s how these cupcakes came out! I was trying to make a strawberry frosting but the end product turned out to be way too thin and would’ve dripped off of the cupcakes if I would try to put it on top. Thus I decided to cut a whole out of each cupcake and filled it with about a tablespoon of strawberry icing in the middle of the cupcake. Then I topped them with some whipping cream and sprinkled some grated chocolate on top. I even had some strawberry icing left over to drizzle on top.
The taste? A delicious cupcake that tasted just like a strawberry shortcake!
For the vanilla cupcakes just use this recipe. It’s the same vanilla cupcake recipe I used for Mother’s day and for my birthday.
Here is the recipe for the strawberry icing.
2 cups powdered sugar
1 Tbsp. butter (softened)
4 oz. cream cheese
1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
7 fresh strawberries (pureed)
1/4 cup strawberry jam
In a small bowl mix together the sugar, butter, cream cheese and vanilla. Add the strawberry jam and the pureed strawberries. Stir to combine and it’s ready to fill your cupcakes with.
So what are you waiting for? Get in your kitchen and make yourself some delicious cupcakes! It’s summer, you know you have the time. 😉
