How to make strawberry shortcake cupcakes:
First, preheat oven and fill cupcake pan with cupcake liners.
Next, whisk together flour, baking powder, soda and salt. Set aside.
In a large bowl, beat the eggs, add sugar and continue beating for about 30 seconds.
Add oil and vanilla extract, beat until well combined.
Gradually add dry ingredients alternating with buttermilk.
Beat until well combined. Batter will be thin but this is normal.
Divide into cupcake liners making each one 2/3 full.
Bake for 12-14 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Cool completely and frost
In large mixing bowl, combine cream cheese, sugar and vanilla.
Beat until creamy.
Gradually add whipping cream, beat until stiff peaks form.
It is optional but you can put diced strawberries inside the cupcakes if you prefer. If you have a lot of fresh strawberries to use up, this would be a tasty way to do so.
That is the beauty in this recipe. It is easy to change or adapt for what you have on hand or prefer.
How to decorate:
Add a spoonful of frosting to the cupcake and top with a fresh strawberry.
Make sure the cupcakes are really cool before icing and decorating with the gel. I use a set of these baking racks and they work great!

Whipped cream is another tasty option to use instead of the cream cheese frosting. Both of these area amazing and delicious ideas to try.
The homemade whipped cream recipe here is really easy and so good on these cupcakes.
You can also try using powdered sugar instead of granulated sugar.
Try making mini strawberry shortcake cupcakes.
This recipe would also be perfect to make mini cupcakes. Just use a a mini-muffin pan.
This is the perfect size for little hands or when you want smaller portions. What a fun treat!
I think the mini size would be darling at tea parties, garden parties or even bridal showers.
Just make sure to adjust the cooking time if you decide to make mini lemon cupcakes. The mini cupcakes do not take as long to bake.
How to display strawberry shortcake cupcakes:
These are so pretty displayed on a cupcake stand! I have one that I use for all my birthday parties, holidays and more. They come in so handy! You could also put some of the cupcakes on a pretty cake stand.
Frosted cupcakes are so pretty and you will love having a nice stand to display these on for parties and gatherings.
If you need to transport your cupcakes, these cupcake carries are so handy! You can even get one of the double or triple ones to carry even more cupcakes!
This is especially nice if you are taking the cupcakes to school or a cookout. There isn’t anything worse than ruined cupcakes in the back of a car!
Share with friends!
You might want to share a few with friends or neighbors. What a fun way to share the love!
I like to use these individual cupcake boxes and put a cupcake inside. It’s so fun to deliver cupcakes!
You never know what someone might be going through and it’s amazing what a small act of kindness can do to brighten their day. And who doesn’t like cupcakes?! 🙂
Make a list of people that you can deliver cupcakes to and spread some love! Everyone will enjoy these delicious cupcakes. They are so yummy!
