How to Make Strawberry Shortcake Cupcakes

This red and ripe berry is only available for a few weeks,  so my Strawberry Shortcake Cupcakes are the perfect  way to celebrate this  fleeting season.  They are easy and so delicious!

Strawberry Shortcake Cupcakes Filling:  – 2 cups fresh strawberries, diced small – 1 tablespoon sugar  Strawberry Shortcake Cupcakes Frosting:  – Whipped Cream – Additional fresh strawberries for garnish

INGREDIENTS:

Prepare cupcakes per our scratch recipe or  the recipe on the store bought box mix and then let them cool completely.

For the filling stir sugar into diced strawberries and let sit for 30 minutes.  This is called macerating them.  It helps pull the juice out and soften the berries.

Spoon out an opening  in the center of each cupcake and fill with strawberry sugar mixture.

Frost with whipped cream and top with fresh strawberry garnish.
